For all those who have been violently hurt when you were defenseless…make your life count, for you have every right to be happy.  No matter how much they tried to make you believe otherwise, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL…

 

Dark Angel

The gray walls are but a reflection of her soul…

Her white gown but a mirror of the innocence hidden within…

Day in and day out she looks out a miniature window…

Her mind travels wondering if anyone misses her out there…

The clock’s ticking, a painful remainder of time passing by…

Had they forgotten she existed?

Scared, broken and battered she cries to the Gods…

“What did I do wrong?”…

“Why did you let me see the light of day only to torture me so?”…

She is but 12 yet her body already knows every sin known to men…

A fool she was to have believed anyone cared…

What a fool to have believed anyone would save her…

Now locked in a room she cries herself to sleep…

Her stomach feeling sick each time they force down the pills…

They tell her all will be okay, she just needs to admit the truth..

The truth is not important for lies is what they seek…

Liars they all are…

The ones who broke her ran around free…

They brought her to that ghostly cold place…

Where was mom and dad?…

She wonders each day if they can hear her cries…

At night the memories come rushing in…

They sedate her….

But even in her sleep she is not safe…

New vultures take her young tender body at night…

Imagine….

A raped body…

Muffled cries…

The shredded face…

Scattered pieces of her broken soul…

“I will not abandon you” he had said…

Lies…where was he now?…

No one to defend her…

No one to hear her cries…

Days melt into nights…

Nights melt into days…

“If you admit you imagined it, all will be well”

Lies!…
Every morning she calls for those who were supposed to love and protect her…

“They will be here once you get better”

Excuses, more lies…

Soon the spring turns into winter…

Her anguish and pain take over every night…

Fly she must…

She flies to the deepest parts of herself…

No one but those who stand looking down the cliff

can understand her pain…

Vultures walk around disguised as peacocks…

One day an angel in white appeared…

Their eyes met, and he saw all which she hid…

“Oh child… I wish I could undo what has been done”

She tries to force a smile but only tears rush forth…

Soon she sees the blinding light of the sun…

Soon she sees the ocean…

The smell of fresh air hits her like a stabbing knife…

She doesn’t know her nightmare isn’t over…

Her happiness lasts but for a little while…

It’s her birthday; a day never to be remembered…

Another vulture has been trying to eat her flesh for a while…

She begs for him to stop…

He just covers up her cries…

She cries in pain as he laughs…

He grunts her name…

That vile, ugly name…

A name which vultures like…

As he violently thrusts, she flies…

She flies far away where there is no pain…

A place where she can feel nothing but be numb…

She stands shaking and defeated….

Sheets stain with blood; her sacrifice…

She finds the strength to run…

She finds a voice to speak for her…

But they all turn their backs…

They tried to buy her silence…

They threaten her life…

She seeks their eyes but they hide in shame…

“You just imagined it” they say…

More lies…
She vows never to return….

One day she would be far from their claws…

One day she would show them…

Nobody knows when she stopped living…

Nobody knows just how great was her hell…

All she ever wanted was to fly…

To be as free as a butterfly…

Instead she was sacrificed in a sea of solitude…

She learned the sweet perfume of death’s flowers…

In the darkness she laments every night…

They tried to kill her but she survived…

Forged in fire; she now stands tall…

They took her body, bruised her soul…

But they weren’t counting on God…

The universe embraced her…

Infused its breath of life…

Like a lotus flower she now blossoms…

She rises from the ashes; she has been reborn…

She is now a warrior…

A dark angel…

And words are her sword…

She made friends with her demons…

Angels are her guardians and her light…

She no longer fears the dark…

No more silence…

No more lies…
