>a child of triumph writer’s island #34-triumph

>Hiding in a book … to drown
the vicious voices from the other room.
Paper – crayons
lined up on a table,
your amiable friends.
Where pictures of princesses
escape to love.
Music from a jewellry box with its tiny ballerina,
a melody to float you away.
Frilly dresses – dainty socks – patent leather shoes.
Still the sounds of discontent fill a lonely house
… a child who survived along the way.
Now you build paper castles to show the world
where happiness lies within prism walls …
