Confession

It was a candid confession
when she told her mom
how it happened
and how did it start
How first it was
all game and play
and now it has turn into
a painful, hurtful thing
which is ripping
her soul apart.

How that voice
which evokes the
element of joy and surprise
now fills
her with fear
how she flinches and
runs to next door
or hides under the stair
whichever is near

How she has torn apart
all the pictures in
her family album
and have started
drawing the
scary things
all of a sudden.

How no matters
how much she listens
to the lullaby
it doesn’t calm
the devil within
they always have
a place to hide
a corner to sneak in.

It was indeed a candid
confession,
an honest one;
but everything
tuned into dust
and broke her heart
when she heard her mom saying
“I know, you are lying from the start”.

  1. Wow! Thank you. Very strong and on point. I am unfortunately very aware of the consequences of this parent.

    It is very similar to my post.

    My post was written in response to a friend who after sharing a litany of abuses said her mother doesn’t believe it so “I guess it didn’t happen”
