My eye creates a tear and as it drops from my face,
I sit and I ponder about the whole of the human race.
Such pain and such suffering is all I can see;
my mind is on fire, causing chaos deep within me.
I brew and I brew, over my long and complex past,
my soul embalming itself into a protective cast.
A cast that shields me, from any other human being;
keeping me at bay and alone - oh it's all so freeing!
I haven't gotten far with this new poem I've written,
but I can assure you all, that you'll soon be smitten.
Smitten with my words and all the rhymes that I write;
thank you for reading- it's my delight.
"I write about child sexual abuse and mental health based on my own experiences."
