Late Night Ramblings

My sister has recently looked at what I've been writing, and having told me of abuse she had from Paw-Paw years ago, having never written anything before, she shares her first poem about it here.

Really quite surprising, and I'm glad she did !

My sister has recently looked at what I've been writing (as I guess I've written a bit), and having told me of abuse she had from Paw-Paw years ago, having never written anything of herself before, she shares her first poem about it here !

I live in the city with my one cat, Pumpkin, while she has quite a farm on her hands living out in the country and tends mostly to her zoo, 60+ chickens, 4 goats, 5 husky dogs and cats.

I have offered her to create her own page here but she said share it in your own site and mark it, "Sister."

So, here is a poem my sister wrote last night ! She is always 4-years older than me though I keep trying to beat her on that ! ☺

Dead eyes that tell no lies
Should it be any surprise you never heard my cries
of pain, a life down the drain
but who's to complain
insane

I tried to protect you..
But it wasn't enough.
Paw Paw wasn't the only predator out there.
He told me I needed to be quiet to save you.
So I was quiet.
I endured, what he had to give.

But still you suffered..
Gawd!!!
I didn't want you to go thru what I had.
Instead you went thru -worse-!

If there had been some way for me to take what you took, I would have...
Just so you wouldn't have to bear it...
Oh geeze.. It rips me up inside..
No place left to hide..

Things will never be that bad again.
Things are different now.
My puppies, my puppies..
They show me laughter, they show me love!
They show me there must be a God above!!

Ok, I really should sleep..
The clanging, the banging, my brain's just haranguing..
So tired, so wired..
Insanity mired..

Ok, kiddo..I'm outa here for now..
Thank gawd for puppies..
They -always- make me smile!
Things will never be as they were..
Life now is much better!!!

Still tho..
Oh gawd!!
I didn't want you to go thru the pain I did..
Damn damn damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rapple snapple griphle graph!!!
I tried to protect you..
But it wasn't enough.

If you want to suggest an image I can put above I can, and I check with my sister too, to see if she has any ideas.
