Childs Play

Poem By Rebecca Hall

I slide to the floor
Holding my hands
Over my ears
Begging and pleading
For them to stop

Crystal teardrops
Clatter to the ground
In rythem
To my beating heart

Beating to fast
For my breath to follow
Rattleing my tiny body
Shaking beneathe the kitchen table

Words fly from their mouths
As a bird flies through the air
They pick something up
Throwing at one another

My little mind cant comprehend
All thats happening around me

Please mommy,
Please daddy,

One question running through my mind.....

Why?

I Remember

I remember when you pulled my hair
I remember when you struck me with the back of your hand
Why did you do it?

Children of the night
Taken by light
Lost
Broken

Does It Matter?

Does it matter?
Is my question to the world

Does it matter?

Him

Don't mess with him
You do
And I will hurt you
I love him
