Poem - Shades of Abuse


for the excruciating pain that you caused my young body
to experience with every touch.


for the innocence you proudly stole without permission
when I was only eight years old.


for the absence of colour that you left behind
inside my tainted childhood.

Light Grey:

for all the tears I shed in secret,
hoping no one would hear them falling.

Dark Grey:

for the sorrow that will remain with me,
growing old inside my memories.


for the deep dark hole that you buried me in;
the hole I live in every day.
