Chapter 17
The Pain is gone


   The door is closed

 can never be opened.

    The walls come up

never to come down.

The foundation is deep

    with so many cracks.

The pain is hidden

    never to be found.


The vines climb up the chimney

    seeking a way in.

The grass is over grown,

    the driveway is gone.

The windows are nailed shut

    from the inside.

The pain has been stopped.

    It will never hurt again.
