A Daughter's Protector

quick! grab the soft rose your hand now aching, bloodied thorns unconsidered life's dream isn't always what it suddenly seems in ice cream's melted hope not when a yearning man is twisted; turning, churning curdles sweet milk sour carnal captivity, the new little girl's horror, where slavery spreads her legs life's little trick, survivals mindless instinct, plays it's vicious, ace in the heart card a zygote's military resolve an embryo doesn't consider why precious life somehow swims forth in a plastic, kiddie plunge the wet nurse has no degree, but life hangs, by an umbilical balance dreams are reality thwarted by circumstance time bides, love does not divide, it grows feral strong with fowl gazes ever watching forced sharing, twisted family time, memories remain, an anchor in deepest abyss forward, for a daughter's faint, possible, distant. infinitely small, maybe someday light, a pinprick, blind chance, endured, survived, conquered with love alone, hero Amanda Berry: "You've been looking for me; Hurry, I'm free now!"
