...stepping back into time
...the year 1969

Reticence of Darkness’s
In darkness there stood
protective guards of perishing lives;
Altering between realities nightmares…
Solitude was born inside perception’s eyes,
entering a chamber of innermost security.
There were divisions of separations,
quietude’s of a responsibility shouldered alone…
Weighted with the burdens of the unconceivable;
What means does the innocent have to learn?
…to salvage their soul in resiliency,
under the abusive hands of vile trespass?
Harmed by the violent intrusion,
deception’s wrath wears loving masks…
Beneath these stars dimming beatitude,
did the cry of love echo into infinity’s heart?
Did the glacier of emptiness freeze in time?
Where did the light of hope shine,
while shadows creep upon the knees of secrecy?
Lingering into obliterations of tomorrow,
a presence of undisturbed imprisonments lives;
Never releasing the power of knowledge to see;
For under the fallen moon there are silent sufferings…
An incorrigible reality remains hidden inside;
Blanketed away from the destruction of its truth;
The thieves of disgust stole the eve of moments;
Leaving the permanence of deep scars;
Searching in despair…
There stood in reticence of darkness’s,
the protective guards of perishing lives.
Sheltering them within distressing silence;
Securely watching molesting trespass,
as the safety of hope was repeatedly destroyed…

wow this speaks of the terror of child abuse,of small children living in fear of the footstep on the stairs, you certainly hit the nail on the head with this one, very powerfull stuff, i don't know where that came from, but well written vickie very emotional and evocative.

I see you wrote this at 6:50 in the morning. You must have had a wild nightmare the night before.

In my mind, the only thing worse than deep scars unattended is enduring distressing silence. But with your gift of gab, I can't begin to image there would ever be a silence in your life.

By the way, I have a "sound box" by my bedside that I never seem to remember to turn on. But it's lub/dub hearbeat isn't as good as yours.

Now let me go see if you've posted something a little more romantic recently.

By the way, just wondering: Are you reticent in the dark?
