lost

lost.jpg broken
frightened
with only the light
of his hope
he wanders
the dark halls
of remembrance 

only a child then
and still a boy
he walks alone
seeking that which
should always be there
the friendly face
gentle hands
of a parent

and when the dawn of reality strikes
the daunting truth presses hard
against his failing heart

he has been left
to wander in solitude
through the endless shadows
of his childhood
alone

  1. I am glad I found your blog. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse; something that happened after the passing of my mother and my father remarrying. I was abused from as young as I can remember to the age of 11. It’s taken me a very long time to allow my wound to open and speak out and heal. 🌹
