Broken bones like shattered glass
Crash down to the floor.

Her screams go unnoticed
Until she falls eerily silent.

"Shhh, it's only me."

Can anyone hear?
Does anyone know?

Arms pinned above her head,
She freezes in fear.

Please let it be quick this time.
Please let this end.

Close your eyes, child
And leave your body behind.

Tapped in these moments
I cannot forget.

I will always remember, and I cannot
Sleep.
Very dark, but I had to get it out.
I don't even care that it's a terrible poem, I needed to write it.

A very moving poem that gives the reader insight into both the experience of the child and the lasting effect on the adult.

if you think it's a terrible poem, why did you add it to 38 groups? lol

I submit to the exact same groups every time I post something. No more, no less. Unless I am asked to submit something. Why does it matter to you?
