"August Kisses" by Georgina

"A tribute to the spirit and resilience of the ten-year-old girl I once knew who survived the evil cleric paedophile she had the misfortune to meet" (Georgina)

August Kisses
warm and sweet
sanguine scented
rose flushed youth
lost in summerís
gleeful glowing light-
while all the while
the quarter moon sits tight
and waits to rise
to Seize me

His face I see
and tongue I feel
breathing hardness on
my softly face-
a hand in his
left there alone
to touch and smell
his strangeness

When lost in miles
above the stars
my childish thoughts
engage beyond the moon
of skip and hop
in Safety-
once drenched in joy
to never come
again in night
is pain beyond
all cruelty

To thieve the chance
of love of life
of hope of joy
carved out oneís fate
in black of night-
no freedom borne
inside my heart
I wait till dawn
for there I find
unbound I Am-

Again released
towards Sanctuary
