his crimson red lipstick

Updated on October 6, 2011

it was frightening to see

thats for sure

his scary crimson red lipstick

laughing down on me.

the night mare began with his lips

and then poured from his eyes

yellow and piercing

full of nothing but lies

the makeup covered nothing

but gave window to his soul

all i wanted was escape

but of course there was none

he danced right down into me

and left not a smile

only the images

of his nasty clown style

forceful and horrible

dirty and wrong

with his liquor coated breath

and shoes way too long

he came in the night

colored lights all around

it was the night of the fair

i remember the sound

the shoes went flap flap

tock tock went his cane

orange eyebrows ran down

the white face in the rain

can you hear the clink clinking...

of the change in his pocket?

mad clown is out walking

with his set back, jet black eye sockets

the black and the white

run into the red

those damn crimson red lips

painted on in his shed

he was no part

of the fair of the night

the town never paid him

he ran out of sight

i think that sometimes

his show was only for me

two pigtails and a pink dress

blue cotton candy

so small my eyes wide

at the fright of the clown

as he took of his hat

and kneeled close to the ground

whispered "im here right now

but tonight in your dreams

ill be there with you also

for a lifetime of dreams"

so when you hear that silly line

"cant sleep clowns will eat me"

for some it may be true...

my dream clown only dances

frightening dances just for you

the top of the show,

and the center of stage

my horrible dream clown

in his nightmarish parade

is flopping his shoes

flop flop in the street

and showing the yellows

of his nightmarish teeth

goodnight little Stephie

i say every night

for its my inner child

he seeks out to frighten

...and he doesn't do a bad job either......................

      Clowns always creeped me out too. Your creative style has captured all the childhood horror of this strange occupation.

      I really dont like clowns after I read this poem. It was very descriptive and I could see him standing right before my eyes. Kinda scary but very well written scribe.

      smiles :)

      clowns can be pretty creepy. I was ready to punch one in the face at a haunted house one time, he kept getting up in my face honking his little horn and pissing me off lol my best friend is scared of clowns though, so she could relate to this poem very well, and probably run in fear after reading it lol.

      Definitely frightening. I don't have an issue with clowns -- other than King's Pennywise -- but I have plenty of nightmares courtesy of childhood memories. Love it, Pink, keep them coming, please.:)
