Quiet As Night

Written by: Janet Vick


The other shoe
a mystery, discovery...
The other shoe
knowing disappointment was due.
It’d been good, didn’t want to see...
Never thought it’d happen to me,
the other shoe.

Quiet as night,
demon of darkness found the face.
Quiet as night
when innocence robbed of the light
while beaten and bound, tied with lace...
as torture becomes commonplace.
Quiet as night...
