Hopeless I remember love first I want to keep love beside me I want love to stay with me I need love to stay with me Love is ruthlessness and happiness Love doesn't want me But it looks for me Love is between your fingers your blinks and winks Love is your breathing your smile Love is your mole your dead hair Love is your pimple your scar Love is beautiful wonderful adorable ethereal Love is peculiar strange unknown blank Love is everything Every step Every touch Every time you say my name Love is in my dreams and in my nightmares Love is in my imagination So do you see? You are love and I love you But you don't What is love's purpose now?
WARNING from the author for potentially sensitive content
A child never forgets Degrading, dishonorable, harmful A victim feels and experiences It possesses them innocently It gets involved until it's so familiar Dear child, begin to wonder I beg Are the pains unbearable? Magnificently told a hidden trick, a gullible And now little one lived a trauma forever When asked about these desires Cruel, wild, and twisted wires Hidden behind the context of preference Losing a sound and common and moral sense No more secrets to keep, no more lies to hear Fear is inevitable, help will come Shame those with a wicked heart Dear child, I hope it is now safe, yes, you are
