Therapy Talks

Now heal this 


who’s missing safety.

Daylight exposes

dark secrets.

Nightmare awakening, 

screaming child.

Hush, now, exasperated parents

place drunken touching

in unopened drawers,

hidden luster 

until the truth

reveals luster,

hidden drawers unopened

in touching drunken place.

Parents exasperated 

now hush.

Child-screaming awakening, 

nightmare secrets,

dark exposés.

Daylight safety 


whose child

this heals now.

Written for #OctPoWriMo Day 22, Betrayal, in a palindrome form.  Inspired by: Disguise, Drawer, Luster,  Exasperated, and Safety.  This form is difficult, and it almost made me change my rule of only devoting an hour to the prompt poem.  I am sure to revisit it, so I welcome any comments.
