"Sonnet Of A Wounded Child"

by: shattered teardrops

09-20-'05

Drowning in a deep ocean of sadness

Unconsciously drifting away

My heart is full of sorrow and anguish

Remembering my childhood spent astray

I close my eyes and drift in oblivion

I wish to simply vanish, disappear

My innocent heart lay cold, abandoned

My vociferous screams no one could hear

Shattered tears streaming down my cheek

Soft sobs shaking my frail helpless body

You are what I heed, you are who I seek

Yet you still continue to ignore me

Reaching to touch you but you turn away

Heeding your help but you refuse to stay...
