Tear drips down
Tears the heart of mother.

Rough hands
Imploring eyes

"Why did you do it?"

Empty eyes
False replies

I know what they want
To hear.

Shake
Squirm
Scream
Run
Inject.

Calm.

"No one needs to know
About this."

Secret hurts
Hidden changes
I am no longer the same.

But
Perception equals reality
So to you, Daddy
I am

Fine.
