Written by Faye Firth

 

As her neighbor stalked the hallways

Put poison in her milk

The authorities could do nothing

No evidence they would chink

She broke in through a window

Then used weed killer on my lawn

I asked for help again

Mediation was adjourned

My garden shed was broken

The trees cut down to root

I called again for assistance

Camera evidence was bleak

She hit me with her car

I saw her smiling face

The court let her go 

with a meaningless disgrace

I locked myself away

I heard her through the walls

My time was coming soon 

that milk was just the first

Her daughter knew her demons 

but there was nothing she could do

When she visited me that day I tried to stop her stay

Her silent sobs of pain and guilt realizing her mothers sins

My body bruised and battered but my soul free with gains

I don’t feel pain or anger now watching earthly happenings

Making sure the new tenant is safe from the evil next door groomed.
