Twisted Child with the Slit Throat Smile.

It was January...
Or June...
Hard to measure time
when it lags
by the millenium.
It was May,
or April.
Where was I?
Can't recall.
Didn't want to mark
the day,
or place,
lest it be lent
too much credence.

It was day,
or maybe night.
The guardians at the gate
were remiss,
because you are blood;
at least they said you were.
For this you were trusted.
I never liked the look
on your face,
dissembling.
I didn't know you,
but was delivered to you,
and my life was required of me
on that day.

It was time for my bath
or so you insisted.
I trusted you to know
these things.
But you stood in the doorway
and would not leave,
so I pretended
that you weren't there,
afraid,
terrified,
naked.
Did it please you?
Did it entice?
Clear skin
and tender virgin flesh?
Did I seduce you
with my innocence?
Am I the one to blame?

There was no one
to call to for help.
There was no one
to rise to my defense.
No way to shield myself
from the dagger
of your affliction,
as your seeds of evil
pierced my naked soul.
Witch Doctor
Warlock.
You did more than impregnate
my spirit
with your witchcraft--
you made me a freak
like you.

But it wasn't enough
to slake your thirst
by twisting me
into a monster
until I, too,
learned to rape
everything I touched,
you had to cut my throat
from ear to ear
and leave me to bleed
in the bathwater,
which could no longer cleanse
my filth.

Maybe that scar
is why people think
I am smiling
all the time.
It confuses them
because black thoughts
and grim deeds
seem ever to paint
a darker view
of sanity.

I'm glad you thought so, FB.

SEA, I have tended to lean away from this sort of writing myself in the attempt to maintain a healthier perspective than I am normally accustomed to. But I've recently discovered such cathartic expression to be... occasionally liberating. Glad you appreciate the writing.

Thank you for your praise and your compassion both, Romantic one.

And yes, it speaks of my reality.  My days have been spent untangling myself from this, and other forms of ruin. But I am alive.

No worries, Govorness, lol! Bloody hell is the mildest and probably most appropriate thing to say about this subject!

Wow, XGarapanX...wow i'm speachless. This is far beyond amazing...I can't find the right words to describe it Two thumbs way up!!

If you love someone, let them go. If they come back, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.

And I fail to find the correct words to respond to your enthusiastic endorsement. It's humbling.

Thank you, graeshine. Yes, it is the hour to put the time of pain aside, even a piece at a time.

Hahahaha, this was great!  I love the punchline at the end.  If I didn't know any better, this poem is an attack on contemporary society, with its emphasis on a largely boring normal way of living despite the stupidity inherent in a lot of what's normal.  Your speaker sounds like a soul rejected by society (or at least raped by it).

The poem flows well my friend.

Life's short.  Think hard!
Me!
