she remembers

As a young girl, she remembers the 
anguish
Mother and father, a youth divided
A child, shattered
Pain re-lived, never forgotten
Some say..."she was too young to 
remember, dont worry"
Well, im here now
Seething...."I do remember; ive lived my 
whole life trying to forget"
Eternally diseased, always denied


I sat, that day, on the top of those stairs
Damaged, broken, changed
A little girl, ripped from her mothers 
embrace
Infinite loss
Devine...
