Little girl

Posted to Poetry

How did the little girl
hidden deep inside
surface to cry
after all of this time?

The grief from all of the lies
inflicted self-torture
from someone she claimed to love

Fighting with a loveless husband
she had to leave
he didn't love her
though he denied it

comming home drunk
she had her backpack on
and left the apartment
left everything
left a shell of herself

Now years later
it surfaces
in the deep throbbing night
she is so lonely
she thinks she might die.
