Monstrosity

Family secrets
blood kept
never acknowledged
point the finger
prime the poison
blame the victim
embrace…….
Voices raised
torment laced words
screamed in defiance
while blind eyes are turned
ignoring
the scene before them.
Hands raised
cringing from the blows
sneak back into the corner
once there
I shall no longer fear
disappearing into the dark.
Empty seat at the table
nary a place set
it has become apparent…..
I am invisible. 
No one wants to hear
no one wants to acknowledge
damage done
not so easy to shovel away
hiding behind falsity
chiselled smiles on their lips.
I am the elephant in the room.
Forgiveness is in short supply.
Thoughts run amok.
Watching through the garden gate…..
My life.
My memories.
My pain.
Dismissed
forgotten……
never acknowledged.
