When The Past Was Draged Forward438 - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

when the past has been
draged forward, your find
a child, alone and defeated.
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child
hiding in his mothers arm.
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child
with splints and bandages
and a black eye, .
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child,
waiting for good old dad,
with a gun.

    Very intense, almost surreal. I assume you intentionally misspelled 'dragged, ' though I don't know why. (Report) Reply
