In the shadow

A shrill cry
from here
never ending
pain in the cry
tear-stained cheeks
claw the walls
to come out
of the shadows
where beauty
burns to ashes
cries drown in the walls
prayers sway with the wind
mercy is unheard of
waiting for a saviour
who never comes
to the blood-stained shadows
while death awaits
ready to pounce for
growing shadows
move in the darkness
drawing blood tears
beating up the spirit
till it snaps under torture
(of rape)
and the namesake
law protectors laugh evil
at their success
of breaking the
spirit of a human
they pledged to protect
they shall remain in shadows

  1. Powerful, raw piece! I’m glad you were able to finish this and post it to share with us :3 Sometimes it takes me a while to finish poems, too. You did wonderfully!

    Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been around. I’m still in the middle of moving! Ugh. But I hope you didn’t forget about me :3 I posted the next chapter of my novel. I hope you’ll find time to check it out and tell me what you think ❤

    1. Hi! Long time. I knew you would be still on the move, I understand. I didn’t forget you, in fact I was waiting for your Chapter 5. I will read it ASAP and I will leave my comments as always. 😀 Be safe and happy trip. ❤
