Running The Maze

Daddy was an expert at driving the lab animals mad
It was his job, it was his passion. Daddy had talent for it.
Daddy married a woman with a pretty child and no maternal
Instinct drove them to it. Unhinge that child Daddy, see what
She can take. The little whore becomes your slave until she is
Too old. Unhinge that child. What is she but a ticking time bomb.
Call her a liar and she becomes one, threaten the cage again, bind her
Mind with fear like Chinese women’s feet. Women are used to torture
The women her mother hates so much, apron wearing women,
Domesticated dumb cows. The girl will run the hamster wheel of
Repetition, repetition, repetition
Until she’s the only one left alive, alone at last. Talks about it like
Normal life, like normal life
Like normal life.

Thank god you haven't held my inappropriate comments against me. I have been slipping into depression, and often have a bit of snarky mania prior to the long winter sleep. Still, it is no excuse for rudeness and insensitivity on your site. I have read since then, but not trusted myself to comment.

Music to my words. Thank you Ghost. I wish I were feeling less savage these days. I will try to force myself to post most sweet to satisfy the seasons needs.

Normal is boring. Your life is anything but ...

Ghost Dancing, The Circle Game. Love it! I read "Women are used to torture" and thought of a post I got, entitled Thin is the new miserable.

It's a reminder to love ourselves.

Pardon me, but that was no daddy. That was a predator/madman. That child was normal and still is. Only her situation was abnormal. I'm glad you've broken the bindings.
