Tears stream down
from forlorn eyes
A fountain of purest substance,
flooded with lies...
Tainted by insult;
my disrespected youth
Shrouded in deceit
and deviated from the truth.

Beaten down by those
who held my trust...
And taken advantage of
with a searing lust
Consequence came
with anything that I said;
Whether 'twas fib or fact,
my tears were shed.

I barely withstood
their trembling fury
Tormented and questioned
by my own kinsmen's jury...
I could take it no longer;
the road was too rough...
My virtue was eclipsing;
silence and faith wasn't enough

I lost my path in dusk;
my innocence fled to darker lands
With a box of sharp objects,
I took matters into my own hands...
Shrouded by mists of confusion and pain,
I didn't know what to do
Left afraid and alone,
there was not one soul I could turn to...

And even if there was...
They wouldn't have cared to know...
They wouldn't have cared at all...
And they wouldn't have understood.
I had another memory pang/ flashback/ freakout (whatever you'd call it) recently. Instead of residing to self-destructive behaviors, I wrote this. 
Hope you enjoy! ^.^ And keep your head up my Loves!!! Heart

I hate to sound so meek, but.. This made me cry. That was beautiful, and explains a lot of my childhood. I absolutely adore this poem, and it shows that you are truly on a much higher level than I when it comes to poetry. I respect you as an author, and adore you as a friend. If ever things DO get bad again, tell me. I swear I'll be here for you. <3 You shouldn't have to bare such a burden alone.
