Tortured Youth



See that house back there,

it haunts my dreams.

It causes a scare

and brings on screams.


So many tortured days

spent in my young life,

emotions set ablaze

from weeping and strife.


These eyes of mine have seen

many horrible things.

Some of it was obscene

and involved squeaky springs.

At times I do go back,

you may think me insane.

It's not sanity I lack

it just keeps me humane.

You may think me twisted

from childhood sense of view,

knowing evil existed

has kept me safe from you.


I'm stronger from those years

and wise beyond my youth.

I may still shed some tears

but I can see the truth.
