The laugh

Of one not quite there

She lives in a world of untruths

With no care

For those she will hurt

It’s evident and clear

Her lies and manipulation

Change direction and steer

They told me to watch her

Why bring her to the fold

Because she is close

And mad and cold

So release her and give her

something to relish

Or am I being

Too forward and selfish

Egg shells

Are so fragile

Just like your mind Not agile

Since he left you abandoned

Head spinning and broken

We’ll pick up the pieces

I love you he teases

Stole your thoughts then he laughed

Broke your brain stabbed your heart

You forgave, sad and blue

But your brain blew a fuse

Always nervous anxious and tired

No blue pill, very wired

So amongst the shells we walk

We listen you talk

He’s back now you pray

But he just wants to play…

Daughter

I watched the light dim

As your chocolate eyes watched him

Like many others before

Treated you like a whore

Angel like and naive

A good girl I believed

Walking a dark path straight to

Adulthood just to prove

All around you cotton wool

We tried to cushion you

From the world out there

But you just didn’t care

So on you kept going

Till the fourth boy left you lonely

Defending them you did

Your hurt you couldn’t tell

Kept it buried down the well

Till the water overflowed

Up the darkness it arose

Shaking with rage inside

Blew your insides soul and mind

Now the white walls surround you

Whispers white noise docs in blue

Watch you closely as the cracks

Reveal secrets deep dark and black

I wish you could’ve talked to me

Before the eruption made you bleed

If only you shared your pain

Of the boys who broke your brain
