I wrote this just now. It's one of the crappiest poems i've ever written but it expresses my feelings.

Fingertips like glass shards against my skin,
tracing invisible scars,
the blue moon outside my window
a phantom observer
who offers neither admonishment nor praise.
If blood is blue until it touches air,
why is red the color of violence?
Is blue the hue of the solitary poet,
the remorseful saxophonist,
the wretched and the subdued,
or the color of aggression,
masked by fond caresses of flesh?
Closed eyes,
muffled laughter,
bed sheets stained by blood.
Red is the color of shame,

Dan, Hang in there. I have to say that nothing "crappy" could be this moving. keep expressing... keep posting... it helps.

The point is that the poem is YOURS, it expresses how you feel. So many of us here will appreciate what you are talking about here.

Shame is clearly something you feel, Dan, but let me tell you, it's nothing you deserve. Nothing that happened was your fault.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
