Haunted Playgrounds

Haunted Playgrounds

empty playgroundWhen you come alive and die
At the same time
What do you do?
Do you feel guilty, ashamed?
Do you allow yourself
To breathe unhinged and
Take whatever you can get
In the form of joy?
Death is over in a mere second
But to come alive, well,
That big bang is over
Just as quickly.

My heart would sing
Beneath his touch
While my body withered
Beneath his abuse
He spewed his vomit of lies
And I gulped them up.
A lifetime of
Cumbersome body issues
And malnourished
Emotional upkeep
For wanting love
And finding it.
