Hidden Torch - Poem by Melvina Germain

With defenestration in mind,
silence becomes my best friend,
compassion lays not in the belly of my soul.
Lock up the enemy, monsters of society
Take away memories of a long time past,
Bring on the future, a better class
Remove the demons, old eyes of horror
Can I toss them to the wind,
lay them on a railroad track.
Forgive the sin, say good-bye to sorrow.
No matter what I do, this pain never subsides
Don’t know what to do, no place left to hide.
