Me feeling need

Smile little child
Smile for me
Me who is you
Me who cries
Cries for her
Cries because
Because I knew
Because I was there
There is no excuse
There was a way
Way back then
Way too much pain
Pain we carry
Pain we hid
Hid behind smiles
Hid under years
Years passed quickly
Years changed nothing
Nothing was done
Nothing was a difficult easy
Easy does it
Easy to wait
Wait for the right moment
Wait for courage
Courage to say
Courage to feel
Feel our way here
Feel all those feeling
Feelings will be hurt
Feelings can heal
Heal all of us
Heal what was taken
Taken childhood
Taken trust
Trust is hard
Trust me
Me who was there
Me who witnessed
Witnessed too much
Witnessed more
More than I knew
More of the shame
Shame on him
Shame games
Games in the dark
Games played with our minds
Minds controlled by need
Minds bound by unspoken

Becca's Slipping away contest.

As time slips away so does the time for reconciliation.

    Excellent blitz Richard, you do this form very well and an interesting one to adopt for the contest..

    .... and yet again you excel with the Blitz! The memories and the heartache felt absolutely real to me, as if I was living it. You ought to do this more often! What I love about the blitz is that I almost never know what it's going to be about when you start ... you can't control it, but rather you just got let if flow out, and unlock whatever is there inside of you.

    What a powerful write Richard, a coherent theme throughout, forcefully short expressions, loved the form. Is there a syllable restriction to each line? I will try it maybe.

    Not many times will this form carry a message throughout but I got everything you said Richard. Many times it is hard to speak up when we are on the "inside". Once we are removed from the situation we can see and speak out.

    WOW Richard.. this is excellent! I've been looking at this form to try it. Great example here. I hope you don't mind me saying that the proper homonym in lines 12 and 39 is "too much"... an extra o in too signifies an amount. :) I will come back to read this one again for sure. Thanks for sharing
