Broken Wings
You always told me I was an angel
They'd just broken off my wings
I believed you until the day
I learned that innocence doesn't come back.
They snapped off my wings, ripped them right out
Smirking as they watched my innocence flow
Out the wounds they'd inflicted
Secretly rejoicing when they learned that I
Had forgotten how to cry.
If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't know my own name
I wouldn't know the sunshine
I wouldn't know the rain.
You cared for me as a mother should
With you, I could pretend life was good.
In secrecy, in silence
The two of us made a pact
That whichever one of us got out first
Would try to get the other back.
I know this isn't something you want to hear from me
But to them you were the angel
And I was a rusty lock without a key.
Something to be tossed away
Not given a second thought
I hate to tell you, but no one cares
About this rusty old lock.
You used to call me baby
And hold me while I sobbed
And told you all about 
What had just happened to me.
If mama or daddy bothered to care
And it was just one of them
I'd have shelter to this day
But alas, it's both of them.
Who does this to their child?
Calls them 'worthless', 'piece of trash'
Tells them they're just a stupid mistake
'We never should have made'.
But more than ten years later I'm stuck here
Not knowing what to do
Being beaten half to death
Because they heard me cry out for you.

A Word from the Writer
We're slowly but surely learning more about this kid and his life. I still have to figure out his name.
