Five words.
I am not the most artistic poet ever, but my poem, thogh freestyle, has meaning.

Hands: Hands that were where they should not have been. His hands calloused, and manipulative. Mine, small and easy to control.
Zippers: Going up and down, what should have been a suit of armour, was but a doorknob to the place where innocence was destroyed.
Faces: 2 Faces, one twisted with evil pleasure, the other contorted and downcast in shame
Grass: Tall grass to hide his perversity, and to hide my shame and sorrow
Touching: The sick touch of a man too ill to care, and me, left for years without the ability to feel the pleasure of an honest touch.

Five words, words that shape my very person. Five words, and five images from long ago, when I should have been something to someone, instead I was nothing to everyone."

I know its not a 'formed' poem, but it is my life.

I think you did a great job expressing yourself

I see something great underneath all the pain and hurt

Thanks for what you have written.

Oh, traillius...

Your poem is very powerful, and very sad. I'm so, so sorry that happened to you, and the aftereffects, too. frown

Thank you, though, for sharing your life with us - both your past history, and your present existence. You matter to us, buddy. Very much.

Your loving brother,
