The Christmas Sin

By Aries407

The Christmas Sin

An evil presence lies within.
On Christmas Eve it came.
Beautifully wrapped in burlap.
With a scent of pine that froze the senses.
We decorated it with angels, nutcrackers, and lights.
After dinner I was forced to go to bed.
Of course I could not sleep!
I snuck downstairs at five am.
It glowed and hummed above the gifts.
I sat on the floor and tried to guess the contents.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to be a good girl.
To find a knife and go upstairs.
It felt heavy in my hands.
I walked upstairs and creeped into their rooms
The knife sunk into my daddy.
Then into my mommy.
It tore into my little sister.
I carried them downstairs.
Sister was set by the tree.
Daddy in his easy chair.
Mommy on his lap.
The perfect family portrait.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to leave the house and never come back.
I reached the door and looked outside.
I saw too many people and got scared.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to be a good girl.
To open all the gifts.
I ripped apart the glitter paper.
New clothes, new toys, new gadgets all for me!
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to feed the tree some water.
I found a bowl and filled it.
The water flowed into the basin.
I poured until it spread everywhere.
Something sparked and flames quickly spread.
First it took the gifts, then the furniture, and finally my family portrait.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to be a good girl.
To go upstairs and find my kitten.
I went upstairs to find him.
He sat outside already meowing for me.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to leave the house.
Flames began to burn me.
I stepped onto the window ledge.
Snow and ash sprinkled over me.
One breath and I let go.
Snow made the landing come with ease.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to be a good girl.
To run across the street for help.
My feet ran across the pavement.
A speeding car turned the corner.
Too fast for me to see.
My body snapped against the fender.
Something spoke to me.
Telling me to focus on the light.
To let go and glide among the clouds.
I rose and sat upon the spirit
