The Thief


At eight years old I loved and trusted you.
In one day, I lost that trust, I feared you.
I knew what you had done wasn't right.
You told me to tell nobody, I never did.
Every time we were alone you did it again.
You left me with feelings of shame.
I carried these feelings for twenty years.
My secret was a heavy burden.
I always felt somehow it was my fault.
You stole from me my childhood.

I will always remember you as the thief
who stole something from me -
my carefree childhood days.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
