just like that -- dead
the light in the eyes of a child
wishes and hopes scattered
on the floor, glittering like stars
or a million tears --
your dreams (you). are stupid
you will never. amount to anything
you will always. be a loser/user/abuser
didn't have to touch
words prophesied were enough
to crawl over my soul with
fingers of failure and regret
all these years later, i wonder
what could have been ---
(c) 2009, Karla Dorman (9/7)

|Familiar words I grew up with, Karla. Even now they have the ability to make me sad. Thanks for this poem.
|Reviewed by Swan Son
|A poignant and chilling write, Karla. I hope the words you write help to erase the pain you so obviously feel. Someone else wrote they agreed time does not heal all -- that is true -- what does heal is the love of those who surround you. Your sister sounds like the first person you can cling to ... and you probably cling to each other. You share a past that was filled with hurt but also a future filled with the love and support of each other and your friends. Remember to embrace that always.|
|Reviewed by Micki Peluso
|Karla, this was great--a lot said in few words that really got to the heart of the matter. Well done!!!
|Reviewed by Dallas D'Angelo-Gary
|Poignant and powerful, Karla. Very well done.|
|Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
|Karen, my God! What a sad and lonely life you and your sister must have had. How terribly sad! Other than my novel, "The Climbing Boy,"
my other two novels, "Becoming" and soon to be published, "For Better or worse" are all grain of sand remembrances that I was able to build a semi-fictional story around, but, and I am forever thankful, that none of my "grain of sand" memories are as horrible yours.
Very hard hitting and soulful write, my friend from Texas from your friend in Southern California, Mark.
|Reviewed by Lori Moore

This is powerful, real, hard and pained...and so well said.
|Reviewed by Dawn Anderson
|Karla, you are a beautiful and talented woman...I know it's difficult at times...but focus on the "now" and the future...thinking and living in the past often give us nothing but sadness and heartache. Hugs to you.|

|An unusual write for you but one that definately shows your talent as a diversified author who can capture the spirit of the topic you choose.
|Reviewed by Cindy Tuttle
|Karla, if these are things that happened to you I an so sorry. Good thing is- you can break the chain of abuse. It can stop with you. I believe in you and your faith.
|Reviewed by Juliet Waldron
|Yes, and those are the chains that are handed down, generation by generation, in many families. Almost impossible to break, too. Love and hugs!|
|Reviewed by Michelle Kidwell Power In The Pen
|Karla I can relate to this in some ways, but I have learned to move on still the scars are always there
In Christs love
|Reviewed by Regis Auffray
|I am very familiar with what you share here, Karla. They say that time heals all but I do not agree. Words spoken to us by those we ought to trust are indelible within our souls. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
|Reviewed by Patrick Granfors
|You are what you are Karla. That happens to be a good thing. You are a good thing. You will be what you will be and only you have that control. No one else. Patrick|

|I wrote a really long review (story actually) but then decided it was too long... hee, hee...
I posted my review as a short story about the power of words... "Changing my Tune."
We think you are of great worth, Karla... I hope you know that.
Love and hugs,
|Reviewed by D Johnson
|powerful, powerful words.
|Reviewed by J'nia Fowler
|Remember daily that in Christ you are a new creation. The old has passed away, for good and you are perfect in His eyes. Love and hugs, J'nia|
|Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
I am sorry you had to endure this. So did I, but you had to put up with it more, so the hurt is a lot deeper. Powerful write. Words spoken can kill as effectively as a weapon. Well done!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(
|Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
|Never mind that. Don't let the past gnaw away at your soul. STOP IT! You are who you are now, be proud of it. I am speaking from experience here, Karla.|
