 words from the soul


Emptiness sighs quietly
Repeating passage 
Nuance of escape forgotten

Memory unbearable pain
Stealing dignity
As your body suffocates
Simplicity of sunlight
The splash of summer water
Child laughter
Leaving darkness
Obscuring innocence 
Marks a soul
Forcing silence
A child without
From your
You pray forgiveness
While the child believes
there is none
Give back what was taken
You cannot
No restitution
For a child
Only you may ask
And it is given
