Untitled Dark Poem #4

Never guess
smile on my lips
light in my eyes
beneath it all
I weep
sorrow everlasting
not able to tell
not able to reach
told everything is fine
one will believe
never seeing evidence
of cracks
within the soul
slathered over
hiding whipped child
hiding vicious lies
while looking in mirror 
dead eyes staring back
mouth agape
no one 
small child
to be let out
to be taken out
to be cared for
not discarded in pain
shrieks abound
stifled by walls in own mind
walk slow shuffle
can you forgive me
can you forget
the little girl inside
she had to come out
she had to break free
she had to…..
consume me.

  1. I see your dark and painful muse is alive and well and kicking butt all over the place. This is a very powerful imagery piece, it creates a very dark place in my mind where I see this unfold. Thankfully I can also step back when it ends too. Beautifully crafted piece lil Sis. I stand in awe. 💖💖💖
