Amelia!

He was now thirty yet he remembered

as though it was yesterday

had been reluctant to come back here

the house in which he was born

even now he wanted to turn and run

with this house was not done!

 

Was three when my friend first arrived

an only child found it lonely

parents to busy to take notice of me

the nanny was very harsh

when Amelia came wanted be a friend

misery came to an end!

 

At first it was great days of laughter

running around the garden

climbing trees somebody to talk to

but after a while realized

nobody else could see her accept me

wondered who she could be?

 

The day nanny came into my bedroom

heard me chatting to Amelia

became irate unable to see anybody else

was quick to inform my parents

thinking I had a problem with my mind

wanted my mental state defined!

 

Would not believe that Amelia was real

as they could not see her

was sent to psychiatrists to be assessed

but nothing was found wrong

resigned themselves to leave me alone

for me no more reasons to moan!

 

It was decided to have me home schooled

so that was my education

arranged which pleased me being a loner

already had a good friend

on my twelfth birthday an accident occurred

though my memory was blurred!

 

Nanny to me had truly out stayed her welcome

just wanted her to leave

heard the awful scream ran to the staircase

she laid still head twisted

saw Amelia smiling at the top as my dad came

taken as an accident nobody to blame!

 

Maybe I was blase or to young to understand

but nothing was the same

my parents had never shown me any love

it was if they did not care

always out or away on a long business trip

in their world did not fit!

 

At sixteen did start to question why Amelia

did not seem to age at all

she always laughed and never did explain

it was then while in the garden

an attractive girl looked over the brick wall

emotionally for her did fall!

 

A young family had just moved in next door

soon we were talking together

having lived a sheltered life this was exciting

soon it was apparent Amelia

certainly was not happy would soon regret

that the girl next door had met!

 

Standing back from the now derelict house

could still visualize the arrest

being driven away proclaiming my innocence

as they had found Lizzie

outside on the patio she had been strangled

her beautiful body mangled!

 

Had gone to bed on my that’s all I could recall

with my past history they decided

maybe in a state of insanity must have killed

tried to tell them not by my hand

but my parents in their room they were found

strangled gagged and bound!

 

Thirty years on had been released on license

it was felt they had cured me

even now by my side Amelia stood smiling

we are together Andy forever

your one true friend I have waited for you

what she was had no clue!

 

Knew we were bound together until my end!

His Secret!

He had been thrown out at fifteen his secret

by parents who were always high

never knew love of a family always a loner

had a sister he tried to protect

his haunted vision of her always crying

yet like him always defying!

 

Within knew she would survive their cruelty

what else could she now do

nobody ever came to help them get free

his will to live was ebbing

worrying about his sister afraid to go back

the education he did lack!

 

Ended up begging on the street humiliated

on a day when he felt like dying

a dog wandered aimlessly lost passed him

turned and came slowly back

laying whimpering with sad eyes at his side

for the first time in years cried!

 

This scruffy bag of bones and fur needed help

neglected and desperate

identifying his situation with this new friend

now with a purpose in life

that emptiness was not so intense anymore

had to pick himself off the floor!

 

Giving him courage and confidence to mature

named the dog Thor

because he had given him strength and courage

to become a man from the boy

proud to have a loyal companion as he paced

knowing the parents had to be faced!”

 

Settled in a flat of his own and now employed

the inevitable had to be done

ringing the bell still scared him wanting to run

a young woman opened the door

his sister recognised him hugging so tight

filled with such delight!

 

This was when he learned the parents had died

she had tried to find her brother

knew they would meet again and be together

welcoming him and Thor

into a now happy home the passed left behind

their future clearly defined!
