Lost Innocence

Storm of the past

Still ripples to the shoreline

Echoing memory of a dark story

When a black-hearted antagonist

With a hidden agenda

Usurped child’s right to happiness

Slashing innocence

With no remorse



Adult-child awakens

To haunting memories

Pain-body cries out

Bleeding into present moments

Needing salvation

Praying for healing

Having sacrificed too much

In one lifetime


*(May healing and happiness find you one day, M.)

    This imagery just hits home in a ragged way. The sacrifice hovers. And knowing we aren’t alone…your words do that. Thank you.

    Powerful. Hard. Real. Sad.
