A short, for now, series to relieve personal pain...

Each night he awakes with nightmare fear

To his parents & others his fear unclear

To him each night he is again tortured

His virginity taken, his love butchered…


A darkened field, black

Lights behind, what does he lack

His place there to die, his soul punctured with a tack

Bodies piled on top of him in a perfect stack…


Sleeping well during his whole childhood impossible

Sleeps during the day to avoid the dark & dank

Found hiding in closets, afraid to reveal himself

His life a jumble, his dreams a jungle

Feel for this little boy, he stands before you

As now a man, his memories up for review…

Horrid & discombobulating. Hallelujah HE now wields the power to clear a path he chooses in his jungle of dreams.

Tragic that children have memories like this, Ed! My heart goes out to you.....Anyone that would harm a child or an animal has a cell in Hell awaiting them....

So sad and we know so many are going through this. It's worst then hell.

I sadly wonder how many have experienced such a hell.

It is both sad and frightening that so many children must live with repressed memories and fear.

No way for a child to grow up, Ed. Great write, my friend. God bless.

Some things need to be thrown away without delay, and find delight in new day and nights.
