Far from view, past roads and trees
Under clumps of dirt and leaves
Past a river and mossy green
In a thicket seldom seen
Is where she sleeps yet never dreams

Cold and still, as hard as stone
A temple but there's no one home
Not here, but somewhere far away
A mother cries, a father prays
Ashes to dust, dust to earth
An angel fell, a demon birthed

Demon man, inhumanity
Satiated by unspeakable deeds
Far from heaven but close to hell
Misery in a human shell
Left an angel there to die
And all the other angels cried

Far from view, past roads and trees
Under clumps of dirt and leaves
Past a river and mossy green
In a thicket seldom seen
Is where an angel never dreams

All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream....
Edgar Allen Poe

pandp: "Missing"..
Can't say I "enjoyed" the read, but it was well written. Disturbing subject, we must address..Too many children are "missing"..and missed.

I debated on whether to put this piece on. As a mother, this is one of the most horrible scenarios I could imagine. It was difficult to write but I thought that made even more reason for me to post it. Unfortunately, there are so many "angels" out there in this world we live in.

I absolutely had to comment on this peice, but I find myself somewhat speechless. It's so well-written and the subject matter evokes such emotion, as good poetry should! I look forward to reading more by you!

the subject matter may indeed be every parents nightmare,yet you did a wonderful job, I'm always amazed at how someone can comment on a poem and yet give it some kind of rating,and from where I sit your work is most surely a ten.
