Poem: Named and Shamed

Right from the start you were

Aiming to rip innocence from

Young kids in your care

Molesting for your pleasure

Our weakness laid bare

Never once did you stop

Doing what you wanted

Dragging boys down for your lust

Owning flesh with our guilt

Our lives decayed like rust

Leaving minds scarred and scared

And now my long dead demon I have

Named you

 

Poem: Darkness

Death where is thy sting?

You came and took

Her away

And still you haunt me

In my darkest

Dreams

You sit like a cactus

By my window

In smothering

Stillness

In my darkest

Dreams

I wake in the night

Still crying

Cursing the name

Injustice

In my darkest

Dreams

You reach out darkly

And remember

It was you who died

Not me

In my darkest

Dreams
