-cold lies-

December 6, 2012


records lost to me,

tell me the story you couldn’t-

the un- to my forever,

your facade of love,

the wilting fabric of support,

your lifeless eyes and limp

gestures of affection

should have warned me-

a child, too stupid to think

you might protect her

from the monster in your bed-

all the while, blaming me…

the victimized little girl,

whose only fault was

to believe…

to trust…

that she was finally safe-
