Corner

February 26, 2008
By Laura Pope, Chapel Hill, NC

Pushed into a dark corner
By rough, forceful hands.
No way of escape.

The cold floor
Sends chills up my spine.
The harsh corner
Cuts into my back.

If only a hand
Would penetrate
Through the darkness.
But I turn around,
And nobody is there.

Hot tears
Roll down my face.
Tears of frustration,
Tears of anger,
Tears of despair.

My heart burns
With a fiery ache.
The flames
Destroy all of my hopes and dreams.

How can I forgive him
For pushing me into this corner?
He did it with no regret,
No shame.

How do I get up-
Out of the cruel corner?
I turn around
But nobody is there.
