Hollow


Pedophiles don't molest children.
Pedophiles hunt children.
Pedophiles assault children; pedophiles rape children;
and pedophiles murder children.

Yes, Cat, so true. Whenever a child is molested something is murdered in them.

I agree with isay, there is only one word to describe your illo...powerful!

Indeed ... and too tragic to imagine.

I love Anonymous, too, but even more I loved her work. How could she leave us like that?

Thank you, everyone, for your comments.

Of everything I've done so far, this speaks to me. I keep coming back to it.

I keep wanting to say something more. I've edited and re-edited the text 10 or more times, wanting to rage against the monsters, but forcing myself to remove what might be construed as a call to violence.

Scary stuff! You are right we wrap things up in words to distance ourselves from reality.

It is scary how people get 'bent' in life. It is more scary to try and understand how to live in a normal way after being introduced to a strange real. Yes, anger is there and an urge to act violently. In the name of justice we are criminals ourselves. Your art touches nerves.
