I didn't so much love the ending, but it wasn't BAD per se... It's just that the rest of the poem, I think, was a lot better. *shrug* Personal preference.

The title captured my attention instantly. One thing I absolutely can't stand (well, there are a few, but this is top on my list of 'I Hates') is child abuse: physical, sexual, AND/OR emotional. Causing a child any sort of pain (unless it's for the child's safety) is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE in my book. So anyway, that's why I was immediately drawn in.

I love how you incorperated your penname into the poem ("Shattered tears streaming down my cheek"). Speaking of, I love your penname, btw. That's actually what first caught my eye and brought me to read your first poem - and now this one.

Kudos!

Beautiful, very, very beautiful. The last line's my favorite.

Crushing and emotive. Wonderful job!
