Tuesday, August 16, 2011 prompt "An eye for an eye..."

To Jim, My Abuser

An eye for an eye?
You robbed me of my youth
then murdered my soul,
leaving a void
I cannot fill.
I searched for pieces of me
to resurrect,
but the who I am 
is not
the who I would have been.
An eye for an eye?
A soul for a soul?
I could never do to you
what you did 
to me.

    Ink runs from the corners of my mouth
    There is no happiness like mine.
    I have been eating poetry.
    ~Mark Strand
