I write what I feel…


In the Dark


I can’t remember your face,

Darkly as it always was,

Heavily clouded eyes

Looking ever inward,

Unseeingly – seemingly

Hovering on the edge of life.

Scant memories of love and laughter,

Only of misery and blame;

Looking through the album

Of remembrances,

You were the night to my day,

The dark to my light

Fading away…

You were the depth of my shame

Brought to mind again.

From a pat to a slap
From a word to a curse
Abuse creeps like a shadow
Unseen at first.


Thus emboldened it grows,
Audaciously hiding its face
Beneath comical deeds
Or pretentious affection,


Assured that the lies of the past
Will still hold fast ~
For as long as you believe
You are beloved ~ you will forgive.

Another Day


Another day in the ‘home’

Sandwiched ‘tween two people needing care:

Insulting, abusive, offensive –

If only they were aware…

But those in charge don’t give a damn,

Cover-up, to a man,

Reporting, informing –

Considered complaining.

Let it go, maintaining the status quo.

Exposure is needed

For ‘complaints’ to be heeded;

Income outweighs all

And if you won’t play ball,

Let things be for the sake of peace,

Then you should leave.

Daddy’s Friend

nightmare Pictures, Images and Photos

Daddy’s Friend

Burying her head in the pillow
She listened for the footsteps
And then he was there
Sitting on her bed
She could smell his breath
What’s the matter
Stomach ache
His hand snaked under the bedclothes
Is that better
Muffled voices from the lounge
She squirmed, yes
