WarLondon bridge is falling down. . .The air-raid siren blares. Everyone is hustled to shelters. There's not enough room. People haven't gone to their designated shelter. Probably to far off. More cram themselves in. We already stand shoulder to shoulder. Kids sit upon their father's shoulders. Too many. Too many. . . . . .Falling down, falling down. . .They turn away extras now. Even those who have this shelter. I hear the woman scream, begging to have their children admitted. None are. If they do not reach shelter. . .It would be a massacre.. . .London bridge is falling down. . .Whistling. Boom. Impact made.The shelter shakes. Dirt and dust fall from the ceiling. Not to far from here. We hide to far underground to hear the screams. I am sure they are there though to many explosions not to be. . . .Falling down, falling down. . .Death. Destruction. Decay. Everywhere. All around. What have we come to? Why do we destroy like this? What good does
The Truth..There you stood, decked allIn Glory. My heart, shall fall.Beauty of yours captures.To me? Pure tortures.My love possibly returned?Only fate is staked and burned.Six and thirty I fought,Hoping her heart I bought.Nothing ever back she said.Even time cannot make deadEvery hope I still dearly hold.My world will forever fold.Dull. Mute. Nothing.Ne'er was something.
Abuse IIIt's raining, It's pouring. . .Pain drench through the young soul. She laid upon the ground, clutching her little dolly. Her dolly. The one constant in her life. Dolly never betrayed her. She told Dolly all her secrets. Dolly listened with out reproach. Dolly loved her. she loved Dolly.. . .The old man is snoring. . .Daddy loved her too. Daddy said that every time Daddy hurt her. Daddy did it because Daddy loved her. She thought Daddy loved her too much then. Dolly loved her. Dolly never caused her pain. So why does Daddy have to? Daddy should be like Dolly.. . .woke up and bumped his head. . .Dolly said just a tight hug. Keep hugging Daddy until he stopped moving. Then Daddy would be like Dolly. Daddy wouldn't hurt her anymore. Daddy would love her just like Dolly. It tired her, turning Daddy like Dolly. She wanted to nap now. She hugged Dolly and laid next to Daddy and slept.. . .And couldn't get up in the morning. . .She stood hugging Dolly. They said Daddy wanted to sleep no
AbuseRain, rain go away. . .Pain, pain go away. She whispered over and over. She curled up into a ball on the floor. One hand desperately reaching for. . .something. Anything. Anything of comfort. She just wanted the pain to go away.. . .Come back again. . .Please. Disappear. No more. No more pounding. No more blood. No more pain. No more today. Please. She felt punished enough. She would never speak again of Daddy. Daddy's love must remain a secret. Secret. Secret. Secret. Nothing more than a secret.. . .Some other day. . .Her grasping hand finally made contact. She yanked it close. Her dolly Mama made for her. Long ago. She clutched like her life depended on it. Her dolly. She relaxed into darkness, clutching the Dolly.
LifeRow, row, row your boat. . .Wake, eat, work, eat, sleep. Repeat. Again and again. Such the monotony takes over. No variation. No vivaciousness in your life. The same dull monochrome life. Day in. Day out. Life slowly leeching from your bones. . . .Gently down the stream. . .Life slowly passes. More and more. The currents tug you most of the time. You do nothing but coast most of the time. Why try? You all will end up the same place; six feet under. . . .Merrily, merrily, merrily. . .Droll. . .Nothing to be done. Just sit here until death takes us. Sit. And sit. And sit. Maybe walk some. Then sit some more. Just. . .nothing. . . .Life is but a dream. . .Ahhhhh. . .silence. Forever. Nothing but the blackness. Dark. Home. This is where you belong. Here. With nothing. Finally. . .Forever in the dark.Best to remain.
TimeRing around the rosie. . .Life. Around and round we go. Again and again. The same pattern. Humans really are the stupidest beings on earth. Chance and chance again to change, yet we remain bullheaded. Why? Why be so stupid? Why be so stuck in our ways? We will destroy ourselves. . . . . .Pockets full of posies. . .We try to mask our stupidity. How naive. Nothing can mask it. Nothing can mask the pain we cause nature. That we cause to our fellow human. How? How can we continue this? Do we not see that it will lead to our own destruction?Ashes, ashes. . .The world blazes in an inferno of our own creation. Now it merely is a matter of time. We will suffocate. We will slowly burn. Can you not feel the tendrils of flame creep up your leg, charring it? Can you not feel the smoke invade your lungs, choking out all oxygen? . . .We all fall down. . .I told you so. We would destroy ourselves. We always do. You should lear
Tag: Broken"You know I will always come for you. I swore on my honor to protect you." He promised her that. Just like everyone else, he broke it. She walked alone to the the single tree in the stretch of grass. Their tree. She leaned her head against it and rested her body beside it. She felt so. . . empty.Love morphs right? It can shift from being in love to just love. Right? If it could shift from just friends to romantic relationship, then logic dictates it can shift back. . .Besides, she shouldn't of believed him to begin with. Honor? Yeah right. No one had honor anymore. Not even her. She knew better than to fall for him. She could never have a relationship. Her place would not allow it. Only suppose to touch a life and move on. The only rule she had to abide. When she does not, this happens. It happened before.Best not to dwell there. On either occurrence. Abuse doesn't hurt nearly as much as broken heart when it happens young. Less invested when you are little she thinks. Not much emoti
TagSoft as a feather the light dappled the clearing. The stream gently gurgled. The grass grew a strong green, and the trees rustled as the wind gently blew them. A lone girl sat in solitude upon the rocks lining the stream, her legs clutched desperately to her chest."Tag, you're it," A pair of strong arms encircled her. Immediately she leaded back into the warm embrace. "You weren't at the tree. Why?""Dunno." A small silence ensued."I though it was your favorite place.""It is. Just. . . unless I know you will be there, I can't stay. It is our place." she emphatically declared."You know I will always come for you. I swore on my honor to protect you.""One day you will no there to protect me. What then?""Then you shall protect yourself. I shall teach you to. I know many ways to protect oneself." He replied with a twinkle in his eyes."Now?!" The girl shot up and spun to face him, her excitement billowing off her in waves. He could see it in her every gesture, movement, and expression
