True Story

Slippery limbs entwine around my legs,

rooting me where I stand.

Time lapsed as I stare, transfixed

into the gaping maw of Charybdis.

My prayers seem to go unheard.

Off-balance, I stumble

propping myself against the wall.

A trickle of sweat stings my eyes

as the jaws of the two-headed beast

open wider

and scream

MOMMY!
