    they are the broken boys and girls
    scattered pieces of arrowheads
    paths detoured and pot-holed
    fractured homes and barren souls
    mishandled by life's hand
    they litter our lives
    because we misunderstand
    castaways
    discarded during raging storms
    colorless, but beautiful
    empty, but fruitful
    seen, though invisible

    we fill voids that pulse their malfunctioning hearts
    and bring sunny days to moonless nights
    awaken the lives of these romantic zombies
    their illness cries out insatiable hunger
    a pain that never subsides
    it begs to be bandaged
    blackness that could never be bleached
    severed in spite of your face
    run off despite your race
    -this is the pain that kills-
    pills fail to quell the ills
    it sleeps with all who will hear its cries
    where it resides until it dies
    and we throw them to the waysides

    they are the refused souls
    trapped on the sidelines
    misjudged, masked in joy
    made jokes till they close their eyes

    they are the broken little boys and girls
    we left behind
    Peter Pan punished
    pretending to be immortal
    cause he never grew up
    our Prince of Pop prescribed
    a life of longing for love
    beyond death dare we part
    like the armies of broken childhoods before him
    it magnifies
    blemishes
    on our ability
    to love.
