Feeling Tiny In this Darkness

Feeling Tiny In this Darkness

A Poem by Deborah Brooks-Langford

Dedicated to all the women that have been abused young or old...

Feeling Tiny In this Darkness
She sits in the darkness
Hoping for a dance
Looking to the future
Singing her soul to sleep again!
With Angels to fly
Trying to stay a float
They say she is holding on
And slowly sinking the boat!
She does not want to go outside this night
It’s too cold
For the Angels are crying
Saying things are not right...
Things should be starting to change
But the emptiness
Just doesn’t understand!
He might be there to push her aside
Make her cry, while he holds her down
Leaving her bruised
Laughing at her hurt
As He walks away
Where is the change she prays!
Divide and conquer
Hold and lose
Evade from the rear
Sing her soul to you!
In the struggle
Between life and death
Sometimes the survival
Is not the only way that's left!
If we mark the spot, that we do not understand.
We will learn to late the penalty
For such arrogance is annihilation in the plan..
As she typed her thoughts away
Working to deliver
Feelings that rise like deltoids
To delve into demagogue of emotions
Drains her once again
As the devil hands find her young body
once again...
Feeling tiny in this space of darkness I feel, with one day feeling so very real!
When will it End..
