THE LITTLE GIRL LOST

God’s angels delivered her
into this world with a silver spoon
in her mouth, but not so lucky.
The rich little heiress; daddy’s girl,
fought not to let him hurt her;
she had lived only eight summers then.
The horses on the ranch were ridden
by her father so was she ridden,
only she wasn’t a horse,
but one of God’s own sweet child.
The all knowing mother,
a dumb dummy spectator to the incestuous act.

Growing up girl: a free spirit; an angel’s entrance,
deemed to change her life. With his help
dragged herself into fashion & glamour world;
sex, alcohol,weed and drugs followed–
vulnerable, among with like hippies;
easy prey to opportunists.

A knight in shining armour, knocked at her door,
sweeping her off her feet.
He willed to turn it round for her,
change her world: she chose the fallen angel over the
chivalrous knight.

So trusting, a simple word of
sympathy and lo! She was won.
Her trusted angel paved her way to her destruction.

The knight she so willingly rejected–
dejected married someone so unlike her–
the only one she gave her heart to;
her first and last.

Deserted, betrayed and pocket turned out;
dived deep into drugs, drowned into alcohol–
even more into debt–
bared her flesh nude for debt, to get the next pint.

Human, an ordinary– comes to rescue:
for the love of the little girl–
who she wasn’t anymore.
Running in the opposite direction of life–
away from–
the girl she was;
the life she lived before the angel;
the love of the knight:
the freedom she so much
sought. Rehabilitation didn’t work
magic for her.

She had seen 28 winters;
got the liberation she so needed in life; from
her father, life, the angel and knight.
Vulgar beauty, yet lilies;
Mona Lisa smiles–simple, yet mysterious.
Found her way, yet
The little girl lost.
