Pillow talks.

Why does she cry on her pillow at night

Wondering if anyone loves her for her mind

Just covered in thoughts and fluffy pillow tassels

That’s just how they were designed

Ripped at the seams and knowing too much too early

Why is she only 14 and knows why it aches between her thighs

The washed out fluff from inside the pillow

Is the only one that hears her cries

Coming home black and blue to a house she once called home

Drugs. They caused it. No that’s her only resolution

To the thoughts that drown her deeper then her pillows wrapped up in her tears

So what’s her solution?

Where does she go from a house that wasn’t a home

When she’s sick of running from her mind

Is their anyone out there to help her she wonders

Is there anyone that kind?

A crippled pillow on its last legs 

A love that was once seen as someone who will care

But what happens when that pillow falls apart

It leaves a love that is lost and will linger there

But what’s a girl that’s only loved by her a pillow

The one who controls her dreams

A young girls life lost 

By no ones love and attention and sickening screams

    Category: Sad ?
    More than sad it's bloody awful.
    A well constructed piece it is, but what else? Imaginative statement? Something you've witnessed? experienced? Can't blame you if you don't wish to answer, particularly the last, but it gives me the horrors, to be quite honest - even if, as I am, aware that such situations do exist.
    More context please.
    But above all else, what am I supposed to do?

        Thanks for clarifying this for me, Evangaline. I'm relieved at that.

        Will she grow into a person behind a painted mask of attraction displaying 'I want your attention' to many a poor suitor? Or retain her dignity and place her personal integrity forefront to the world.

        A choice overlooked by so many it appears from the state of western society.

          Such interesting questions Dusk! I am very happy you enjoyed my poem based on my friends experiences when she was a young girl! This is exactly why I wrote this piece as it is very overlooked by society!.
