       story of child abuse

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    so much depends on
    the little girl in the corner

    her face wet with tears
    her thumb silvered with saliva

    she holds the key to our future
    holds our past within her tiny fist

    beaten down by an angry mother
    she hides behind her closet door

    wasting away like a puddle
    drying up in the heat of the sun

    do we not see her hallow eyes
    not see the bruises on her arms

    a fallen angel that keeps drifting
    slys away until she can no longer be seen

    so much depends on the little girl
    laying almost lifeless in her cotton sheets

      really good poem reminds me of the one i wrote about my past but heh its not as good as yours lol you used imagery really well and i think it deserves a pat on the back as its a very hard topic to write about (for ppl who don't understand) my favourite stanza is

    a fallen angel that keeps drifting
    slys away until she can no longer be seen

    partly because it uses my username and that is how i delt wiv it until i had the guts to stand up for myself and get the law involved...

    anyways really great write definitly a faves addition

    take care and good job

    This is beautiful... I'm so glad you chose to tackle this topic... Not enough people realize how sad and tragic a child that came from a violent background is...You did this beautifully...such sad, pretty images

      I like the overall meaning, that we need to remember these broken spirits because they contribute to our society as a whole... Liked it

      I like this. I like how you took the line from William Carlos Williams's "The Red Wheelbarrow" (well, part of a line), "so much depends..." and made this so different. Williams' poem is so visual wth no emotional content, and this is both. "Fallen angel" is quite the opposite of its original use (the devil) too. Nicely done, Amy

      WOW your imagery once again was wonderful, gave me a great impression on what you were describing my favorite line was the one about her thumb being lined with silver saliva thats the one that stuck in my head the most. It conveyed a lot of emotion for me to when you talked about her mother and all. The only thing is maybe worked on how the over all piece flows together, at some parts it rhymes then at others it sort of loses it, anyways i enjoyed this piece, kepp up the wonderful work i would love to read more of you stuff soon! Have a great day! Amber
