A Nightmare Revealed


Innocence, innocence
Destruction, destruction
Betrayal, betrayal
Love, unloved
Confusion, confusion
Incest-abuse.
To trust people, to love someone
To be harmed, black, feathers,
Candles-death
Little child, torture, pain
Outside humiliation, inside destruction
One become two, two become three
Survival-oh the pain
Survival-fear-torture
Must I do this, yes I must, there's no choice
Three, four, push it back, push it back.
Mother, father, trust, no trust,
Oh those visits, family tradition,
What is truth? What is truth?
Many, many, more and more -questions.
Future question, future trials,
Help me, help me,
What is love, where is love,
Help my confusion, earn my respect, help me love,
Tell it, tell it, oh for you, oh for you.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
