Shades Of Abuse

by Baby Rainbow   Mar 20, 2013


for the excruciating pain that you caused my young body
to experience with every touch.


for the innocence you proudly stole without permission
when I was only eight years old.


for the absence of colour that you left behind
inside my tainted childhood.

Light Grey:

for all the tears I shed in secret,
hoping no one would hear them falling.

Dark Grey:

for the sorrow that will remain with me,
growing old inside my memories.


for the deep dark hole that you buried me in;
the hole I live in every day.

    I like the writing style. Also it's very short yet still full of meaning. Good job.
