The Room

                                         A room once filled with life and joyful sound
                                         now stands silent in total darkness.
                                         Its walls are weighted heavy with sadness,
                                         the child that used to live there can’t be found.

                                         His room looks terribly bleak and dusty.
                                         The smile on the toy clown is upside down.
                                         The tattered toy animals wear a frown.
                                         The child’s room feels cold, and empty.

                                         The unloved little boy has long since gone.
                                         He now lives with God in a peaceful place.
                                         No longer will tears stream down his small face.
                                         By tomorrow all his toys will be gone.

                                         In the bare room the rocking horse resides.
                                         All twisted and bent with marks on its sides.

    Thank You again JM! This is a very old one perhaps one of my first and the inspiration for it came from a real child abuse case.

    Another amazing piece, Kim....exceptional in the journey it takes the reading on...visualizing what may have happened to the little one. That last line says it all....Amazing!

    Eileen This is one of my earliest pieces of poetry. I remember getting a A on it in college. I was trying to write a sonnet, but it never had the feel of a sonnet to me, so I lumped it in with my free verse. This one was inspired by a famous child abuse case here in Florida. Thanks Kim
