Abandoned; By: Ciara Bowen

Abandoned.

One simple word,

So  much meaning.

It haunts nightmares,

Lurking in the shadows

Like and ugly beast.

It is a predator,

The lion waiting for the lamb.

When people think about it

They quiver

Like a leaf in the wind.

Ultimate betrayal.

Quintessential denial.

Torture.

Piercing pain,

Such misery.

Undeserved.

Unexpected.

Denied.

Abandoned.
