Covered loveless

Written by: kimmy thieleke

 Shhhhhh.. 


take a minute
to listen..

it's faint 
sorta like 

a whisper

can you hear it?

there's a child 
crying
in the distance

just out of reach
a futile existence

without the assistance
of its mother

covered 
loveless..

born to perform 
in the chior 
of quiet angels

humming hope
choked

by fairytales...

i wish I could read her
a story
calmly comb her hair back
gently lift her chin

i would tell her
that worth doesn't come
in a bottle 
that monsters get scared too
and mommy was just

born broken

 

but

 

 

 

 

 


I can't seem to find that child anymore
