she won't tell

By cre

she won't tell
because they taught her well
and in her world of monsters in every bed
she'd tell you they're not just in her head
but she knows you wouldn't hear
so she sucks in all her tears
if she could cry
rivers might fall from her eyes
eyes that are sweet baby-blue
and she's just a baby too
hasn't yet reached five
but she already knows that being alive
is just a study in surviving
and sometimes living's worse than dying
her first attempt at the age of four
cause she just couldn't take it anymore
but the lake didn't drown her
and the monsters came and found her
she knew she'd never escape
and figured it must be fate
cause mommy told her god hates you
and that's why daddy hurts you too

and in the end, she'll be
just another tragedy

she endured alone her personal hell
and yeah, they taught her well
and she will never, ever
tell.

    Writing is the best form of pyschology for me. It helps me escape, somethings, once they're written down. I can leave it on the page and walk away from it. Hope it works like that for you.

    OMG...Cre... you are so talented. You've incorperated child lingo and concept into a an extrodinarily adult reading work of art. You sense the child behind the words and yet understand the narrator is not the child...or that is how I see it... beautiful..

    grown too young, we falter and we fall... in a world that turns the other way and pretends it doesn't hear as we scream for a reason to go on. another wonderful, sad work.

    I agree with Doc, I hope this is fiction. Very sad story, it pisses me off to know that there are really people out there like that, bitches. Good write though Jane.
