heartpath part two

dreamt of you last night


a tiny child i had by the hand

lost and crying out for me

i held you up and into my arms

comforted you with whispers

like soft breeze

held you to see the goodness of sunset

the vast possibilites for you in those skies

felt your soft, warm child’s neck against mine

so much love

so much

as i rocked you to sleep

again, you cried out, calling for me

nightmares and darkness

back again, disturbing the peace of dreams

and as i held you tighter

comforting you

i felt the bumps on your head

from his fists

saw the moss green

the sick yellow

of the bruises he left on your neck

while trying to choke the life from you..

kissed your warm, child’s forehead

where he slammed you onto

the pavement

and as i screamed your name

i knew i had lost you

as you have lost you

forever or for now

as i let you go

and watched in horror


running back to him

to his fists and his troubled mind

About lindalou5150

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
