• Flesh meets flesh

    I yelp in pain

    My face burns red

    I twist in vain

    My wrist is wore

    My face is hot

    I want to run

    but I cannot

    It comes again

    Flesh meets my face

    My tears are hot

    I stay in place

    "You stupid child!"

    I hear him scream

    Be brave I say

    It's just a dream

    The beatings come

    They refuse to yield

    At last I fall

    He broke my shield

    Darkness falls

    The light has fled

    'You stupid child'

    Was all he said

    In bed I lie

    My body hurt

    I feel broken

    I feel like dirt

    Is this home?

    I'm afraid so

    But what's a home?

    I'll never know...
