The House of Dark Secrets

The House of Dark Secrets

Lies ‘neath the stormy skies

Two sisters have returned

Seeking truth among the lies.


This old house now empty

No hint of life within

They recall imprisoned silence

As they contemplate his sin.


Like lambs upon the altar

In turn each girl was taken

Their worth diminished completely

Bruised, broken and forsaken.


Realization sets in

The youngest falls to her knees

Recollections; chilling numbness

Dark memories now released.


Her sister stares coldly

Off into the distance

She knows what must be done

She fears not his resistance.


As she plots his demise

She offers comfort to the younger

“Vengeance shall be ours,” she says

“No longer shall we suffer.”
