Broken toys
Damaged goods

Sleepless nights
Playing Doctor

She ten
He forty

Never Safe
Always wary

She forty
He dead

Can't trust
Any love

Congratulations on POTD today. We seem less and less able to protect our young today.

A terrible tale, told subtly and sparsely. Excellent work.

Having lived this horror and felt this pain, while still dealing with it's aftermath, I have to say this is a deeply touching poem. and congrats on POTD!
