Colour

 

When darkness descends

Blackness consumes

A shadow of pain envelopes

Hope lost and grief resumes

 

Constantly battling

Forgotten loss

Your colours and light deserted

Glimmers engulfed in moss

 

Grasping towards beams

Searching for hues

Treading water ’til ignition

Dots of red,  yellow and blues

 

Never stop searching

With all your might

For inevitable rainbow

That beams despite lost light

Punishment

A wrong word uttered
Evil thought processed
Misunderstood action
Important moment forgotten
‘I’m sorry’

Been let down,  attacked
Unwanted advance
Nasty words gifted me
Over again;  must be deserved
‘I’m sorry’

An empty stomach
Blood drenched skin
Push away loving arm
Prescribed, dutiful punishment
‘I’m sorry’

Hopeless

Casm of pain
Expanding within
Tormenting dark wall
Enclosing
Blocking out hope
Love and Joy
Air absorbed into depths
Of fear and hatred
Suffication
Claustrophobic isolation
Panicked hysteria
Concluding with
Numbed surrender
Empty
Souless exhaustion
Screams unheard
Reality unseen
Nothing
Nobody
Suffering engrained
Accepted and owed
