Treasure Island

Vonda Overlie

(Havre)

Brainwashed


I pledge allegiance to my abuser, with incredible terror he reigns.
Holding me captive by hearts emotions, not responsible for my pain.

Beat me, cheat me, utterly defeat me, I will worship at your feet.
Singing your praises, with utter devotion, with you my life complete.

Battered and Broken, used as a token for your guilty use.
Me the quiet, timid mime, your perect distorted muse.

I pledge allegiance to my abuser, will I forever sing your praise?
Or one day be set completely free, only I can make that change.

    You said it well. Now throw away the hate so it will not be a part of you. Then, write poems about other subjects: trees, the wind, a kitten, anything but love. Read mine - Night Shift -

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
