~DON'T BREATHE~

~DON'T BREATHE~

A Poem by Jillian Alexis
"

More of my feelings, manifesting upon the canvas.

"

~DON’T BREATHE~

Somewhere deep inside of me,

A child of 9 forgets to breathe;

She dares not make a single sound,

For fear that she may soon be found.

~

She hugs the wall when darkness comes,

yet longs with all her heart to run;

She lays there in that dirty bed,

Awaiting what she knows she’ll dread.

~

They creep into her empty room,

Bringing her impending doom;

And just as every night before,

They use her as their puppet-w***e.

~

She is defiled as she lays there,

Her body she is forced to share;

And when at last they say goodnight,

‘tis then this child begins to cry.
