A Sister’s Twists

She prepared me for the worst
omission of positives purposeful –

Saving me from disappointment
her justification for inflicted wounds –

Years, I’ve railed against her abuse
pointless since she’s long been a ghost.

  1. I think it’s the ghosts which are the hardest. Always feels like unfinished business in a way. Which, for me, is a problem. “Railed against her abuse…” – I get that exactly. Your poem expresses it so well. Gets right to it.
