Unfinished (#6)

Pictures, brown round the edges, occupying places on half empty walls. As the dust gathers so do the memories of a child's past. Healing wounds opened again and letters in strictest confidence for the world to see. Follow me down the garden path, I'll show you where it all happened, oh so many years ago. Follow me down the path. Tears of a brother lost before birth, sentenced to no life at all. Tears of a mother who knew she had lost everything
"We left her playing here beside the flowers and then ... It was horrible. I just can't bear to think about it."
The clock strikes six, everyone eats and then sleeps. A deep uneasy sleep. I can't understand why. Pacing the floor, I stare out into the night. What's left for me?
