Addiction struggles, painstaking recovery, what is left of life?
Sex one click away, pornography too easy, heart and soul dying.
A belt to the back, welts and bruises to cover, cowering in fear.
  No hugs, no praises, an emotional desert, thirsting for feelings.
  Boys without fathers, questioning what is a man, groping in darkness.
