Toni O'Neill Poems
So long cruel place of harmful thought I'm leaving now, I'm to abort The feeling's stayed for way too long The fear has made me not belong
How's It Feel?
How does it feel, the last day of September You're sitting on a bridge, looking out across a river How does it feel always being on your own?
I thought I was strong I thought I was tough I thought I could cope But it wasn't enough
You are the one I think about When things are tough, I need to shout I miss your face, your laugh, your smile The way we'd chat for quite a while
She sits there quiet in the dark of night Alone, afraid, confused; She wants to know what she's done wrong And why she's been abused;
She sits there quiet in the dark of night
Alone, afraid, confused;
She wants to know what she's done wrong
And why she's been abused;
Loved ones that she thought were there
Have turned their backs-
They do not care.
She cries herself to sleep at night
And calls out for someone...
