I cannot live like this for long
being unable to have my own child
I often dream of what might be
if I had been quiet not wild.
The opportunity came for me
I couldn't resist this chance
perhaps this would be the end of me
a phase, a passing glance.
Erika was the only life I had known
I couldn't help what I did
her parents must have been frantic
when their daughter I kidnapped and hid.
Five years had passed Erika was now 12
she only spoke of her parents for a year
and each time she had mentioned them
I couldn't hide a tear.
She was my life it was complete
it lasted until she had met
her real mother at the shopping mall
who recognized her instantly I bet.
The Police were all over my home
her father was puzzled and shocked
what was happening to my family?
the mystery had now become unlocked.
I did not care for her moms feelings
I was only interested in me
I knew my life would be happy
its all I imagined it to be.
But now I am all alone
with a room filled with bars
I never imagined just how they would feel
and the thought of the emotional scars.
Erika is now a young lady
living with her real mom and dad
and do I feel ashamed of my crime?
for a while I was not I was glad.
I was watching a drama series on tv the other night, it was about a little girl who was kidnapped by a woman who had no children, she snatched the kid from the beach, naturally the parents were frantic, 13 years later the mom was in the shopping complex and she thought she had saw her lost daughter, she had seen many girls before and they all turned out not to be Erika, but this girl was,. the drama unfolded as the family tried to get back the lost years and the consequences the woman faced, when she was caught, it was very sad, but throughout the drama the kidnapper thought it was her God given right to see the girl and accepted no blame for what she had done, sadly folks these dramas tend to be realistic.
How do you feel about this? yes its a drama, however it has happened in the past and probably will again
