 BE STILL 

my child.
Let me remind you,

what is spoken and said.
Your hopes and dreams,
they must be
bled.
 
Be a good little Girl,
who loves me back,
as I pretend to care.
Your dress is all filthy,
with lice in your hair.
 You've left me,
 a disgusting mess.
I'll wash out the vomit.
A dirty mouth
 needs Bleach,
 and a good dose of Comet.
 
It's okay my darling.
You'll heal with the pain.
FEEL
this needle and thread.
My precious...
precious thing.
 
You need a hug?
Here's a good squeeeeeeze.
 
Soft skin and bones,
to love and to hold.
Why do you wrestle?
We need to
cut/deep,
don't put up a tussle.
Purge and be empty,
only guilt can you keep.
 
 
** Shhhhh **
Don't cry....
peace be with you.
It's just the skin peeling back.
Your world will
feel safe, when it finally
converts BLACK.

Author's Note

Muse
Please don't pass judgement on me. My inspiration is sincere, even if it's a bit dark for some. My daughter was very ill recently, and I was sleeped deprived on top of it all. I could not stand looking at her, she looked so ill, and she was desperate to feel better. And for some reason or other; I started thinking about the Mothers that harmed their own children on purpose....to get attention. Better known as Munchausen Proxy Syndrome. It made me SICK, thinking about it. This writing came from these thoughts, and from my own broken child hood. I often feel like the little girl being sqeezed to death in this picture. There are so many forms of abuse out there. And I think this form of abuse is the sickest of them all. It's both emotional and physical. FYI, my daughter is well now, but it was a week of ugly emotions for me.

I too am a father,
I understand the mentality behind this. I also see a bit the true darkness within. Not to say you would harm your child or any child, but as to say there are those you would harm if the reasons were right or the time appropriate. I am impressed at how freely you throw yourself into the arms of your concept. You truly exist within it even if only temporarily, I can't say how temporarily. No, that's a piece for another time. I see a 2... 3... 4... sliding into a five. This is ever so haunting. thanks for the suggest I love it.
Sincerely
Christopher

I have not read this one before. You know I love your work and this is one of the reasons why. This should make the reader sick and you accomplished that goal. You tackle controversy and the darkside of human behavior like a true artist. You stir feelings in me with everything you write.

It's a painful sight. It's like I am feeling the pain too together with the child. It gives a horror feel to it on which you have done in poetic form. You are incredible to portray some dark emotions. No judgement here, for i know this is fiction. Releasing your stress in a creative way brings great writes just like this piece.

Woof this almost too dark for this old lad. You write dark and with true talent.

Brilliantly put together, described profoundly, and gets right at the emotion of every reader. This piece flows flawlessly, its a great model of emotion. Very nice work Muse. I hope your daughter is better soon.

Glad to hear that! :) And not a problem!
No judgement here. If you can fathom great pain then you can know great healing. Where the soul has been in darkness the smallest light is heaven. People who do not deal with this pain do not understand that it will not go away if you just don't talk about it. Pain will hold you down and force itself on you again and again until you set it out into the light. Now everyone can see it. You can walk around it to look at it and see that "it" is not sho you are. That you still exist separate, strong, breathing, loving despite what "it" has done to you. It is kind of like going to AA. "Hello, I'm... and I have pain". The first and most repeated step to recovery. I hope you child never ever suffers again, but if she does, she will have a knowing and understanding mother to hold her.
Couragous!

Amazing, WOW
Very powerful, it squeezed my spine, made it hard to breathe a-little.
I cannot judge if what you write about is right or wrong, nor will I! As long as writing it helped you in some way or another, that's what counts.
Thank you for the entertaining read
