NOTE: 2004 00 00 xxHxx EST Child of the Night
Child of the Night
Roaming aimlessly the streets,
In freezing nights without a home,
Searching to escape my reality,
My state of mind was altered always.
Concrete, my bed, I remember,
Rough, cold touch on my surface,
Being constantly chased away also,
Just to save the view for the well-to-do…
Innocence without resources
But the eyes of my population
Disturbed by my existence
Instead of caring they…
My body starved daily,
Lessons harsh - crammed down,
A loving caress never uncovered,
But too numb in my soul to feel anything.
Crowds of misery my new family,
Delusions my only guide,
Isolation overpowering -
I’ll never forget anything.
Lost in enveloping dark desires,
Hoping the end would claim me finally,
Dead inside without hope,
Scrambled to satisfy my needs.
Life of illegality stepped into for survival,
Witnessed all the horrors heartbreaking,
Furthered my need to forget,
Sustaining the neverending vicious circle.
Child of the night worn and torn,
My distress displayed unwillingly;
Like a flashing neon light for all to see
Impossible for anyone looking my way not to notice.
A seemingly cold clerk at the doughnut shop
The only one who occasionally fed me free of charge,
She let me catch some warmth from the cold,
And never once asked, just did what no one would.
If I could find her again,
I’d express my deepest gratitude
For not condemning me,
As all I had become used to, from society.
Puzzlement to this day about my situation
Is how it all ever came to pass,
For I was only a child clearly -
The neglect, apathy should've never been.
Darkest secrets kept to myself
Today I hide among people,
And regardless of my wish to suppress,
A part of me - all of this - will forever remain.
