The Boy Inside

Pay no mind
to lips shut tight
the crooked smile
stretched in pain
the teeth that clench
glimpsed through my face
when he cries
the boy inside
not me
not me
When I was young
I could fly
til father broke my wings
locked inside
forced to feel
all the nasty nibbling things
Pay no mind
to lattice scars
a map to shattered soul
connect the dots
like broken words
sound it out
sound it slow
when he cries
the boy inside
not me
not me
When I was young
I could dream
til father cut my sleep
numb inside
a cloak of screams
but silence sinks too deep

Forgive

The word sits upon the page
coiled like a snake
side to side
it starts to sway
it tries to make me break
Just one path to light
so baby open wide
swallow their filth
choke it down
and seal it all inside
Slow beat, edge sharp
lead-lined poisoned heart
pumps old pain
through crusted grief
and tears my soul apart
The word sits upon the page
wrapped in pretty lies
absolve the killer
damn the babe
ignoring all his cries
