remix/repost from long ago

The fear
never ends.
Little girl waits quietly
praying he will not..
come to her
room again.
She closes her eyes
and prays
To her higher power.
To help her escape.
To the Ivory tower
of her mind..
that takes away the
painful times.
That lets her forget
the shame..
of having to plead
with Daddy again.
Sometimes he will not let
her mind escape..
Leaving her to feel
all the pain ...
all the hate...
Leaving her body to suffer
her heart to ache.
When he is done..
he covers her up..
He leans over and says
--good night buttercup.
He leaves the room..
She is alone now
All alone in her pink room of hell ..
At one time a little girl....
Now an empty shell.
With every invasion
into her small body did go..
little by little
a young fragile soul.

Reviewed by R. Steven Reynolds
Heart wrenching for those who have witnessed it. I ask myself over and over where are the mothers. I am told I should not be angry, I am told I should allow myself emotional involved. I wonder where is the humanity as I destroy the heavy bag with punches until my arms ache and my heart quits weeping.

Heart breaking and well written.

Don't Beat Your Children, Or They'll Turn Out Like Me by Brad Bathgate

"A book of haiku's that brings sunshine to the hood when frowns dominate. Ever seen corner stores in the middle of the block, with poverty performing on the corner? If not, then he..
