His Falling Tears

Tears falling from a child’s eyes,

as his mother covers her own.

A hand rose to strike at a child’s

heart breaking it into a million pieces

along with its hopes and dreams.

 

The child heads for the door, and opens

it to leave, as thunder roars and lightning

flashes a child looks up at a forbidding sky.

The father threatens the child, spewing hate

this will leave them both forever scarred.

 

In his loneliness, fear returns to haunt him.

Alone in the world, except for his companions

hurt and pain. In silence the child withdraws

Into an inner world of beauty, that is known

only to himself, and no one else.

 

So under a small table he hides, safe within

a fortress built upon lies. As his father lifts

the bottle in triumph as if satisfied. A small

child alone within himself cries, as he wipes

his eyes amidst, his falling tears!

Frank, that is a very moving sad poem of abuse.A story of pain, fear,loneliness and heartache. A child so wanting just to be loved and cared for. Thank you for sharing this personal poem with the members. Love Echorose
