Illusions…

Illusions…

A road paved

with rocks and stones

Yet…

a smooth

flat surface

one that is

as much an

illusion as the

oasis mirage

in the middle

of a desert

 

Both seem to

give hope…

but…

are dangerous

in the long run…

Looking Down…

Looking Down…

Why should I

be there…

on the ground

below the vast sky

looking up…

searching…

for your face…

your eyes and

how they bear

down on me

underfoot …

making me feel

lower than

a stray dog…

the one down

the lane who

daily grovels for

any scrap…

not just food

But…

kindness…

compassion…

And…

dare I say it…

LOVE…

Burying the Pain – Day 30 of April PAD

Burying the Pain

No one knows…

My secret locked

away so tight I

even forget it

for years on end

Until…

something…

someone…

brings back that time…

those times…

the horror…

the memories…

all with the

blink of any eye

a look…

a word…

a gesture…

something…

anything…

I never know what

may trigger it

 

And…

 

The PAIN…

The shame…

The time…

The times…

come creeping up

from dark corners

up from the dark

depths of my soul

until my eyes…

my heart…

my brain…

my body…

are flooded again

with the humiliation…

the PAIN…

the abuse…

the abuses…

 

Yes…

 

More than one

using more than

one way to

hurt me…

destroy me…

flood me once

again with

never-ending

PAIN…
