Child Abuse Poems

I sit in the corner
praying to God,
asking Him to save me from this nightmare...
then I hear him.

His footsteps come ever closer
and it sounds as though he's been drinking
(he falls)
I pray that he won't ever get back up.

But his steps are ever closer now
and then he's outside my door.
I pray for him to pass,
to just get to his room and sleep.

But my door creaks open
and I try to scream,
but no words escape my trembling lips.

My screams are silent...
no one to hear me now...
