Poetry Thursday "Combustible"

I used the word " Combustible" from the randomizer on Poetry Thursday! I mourn for the pretty little girl that thought she was getting more than she did!


Combustible Contemplation


My brain is rattled with reflection
Haunting parts of my past revisited,
Unaffected, I should be unaffected
Move on, none of my business
They think it's happy news
My heart is sad, my head is worried
We share different perspectives
A young beautiful girl, so much potential
Exploited by men, enmeshed in a home
Filled with mental illness,
Anger and subjugation
Handed my cast off life on a platter
Served with hope and promises
Soon bolted from the aggravation
Smack into exploitation and subjugation,
Again lured by empty promises and hope
No pattern of redemption for
A damaged child

"Combustible Contemplation" ... how interesting to put these two words together ... but it is true, sometimes contemplation, memory, or thoughts are so painful that they combust. Much peace & love to you Sherrie ... Deb
