Dark Lullabies- Anime Inspired Poem
By: Kaede N. S.
Can you remember all of the
Childhood memories that used to calm us?
Melodies that used to soothe us?
Words of love that used to influence us?
The words that were once so bright
When did they turn dark and twisted?
When did the words 'grow up happy'
Turn to 'die painfully'?
Why did they change?
When did they become a curse
Instead of a dreamy song?
When did it involve pain?
When did the childish love I once feel
Turn to darkness before me?
When did the world become so twisted
That the lullabies became dark?

“Hello?” he called.
The sound of swishing fabric.
“Who’s there? Where am I? Why’d you bring me here?” Blurred memories swam through his mind: drinking at the bar; stumbling home; a shadow sweeping out from an alley.
Fingers grasped his chin and jerked his head upward. “Hush.” A woman’s voice.
