Torn To Pieces

Fear haunts silent nights
screams of tears or joy
once cherished
stolen away 

Memories washed up
on a sinking ship
watch as it slips
further away

Torn to pieces
once tightly bound
wholesome and strong
ripped away

Pushed out
unearthed and
unable to see
pretty flowers bloom

Fear of being forgotten
tears tear and torture
fruits turned rotten
gone awry 

Words whispered
soothing and true
warming hearts
daddy I love you

This is beautiful, but until the last verse the poem could take a whole new meaning, love the twists in any poem! :) Cheers
