Asking you to hold me
But you pulled away,
Asking you not to hurt me
But you did anyway.
Never a response
or a reason,
You left me here,
Bruised & beaten.
Voice’s of demons
Screamed inside,
My heart it shattered
The heart it died.
I lost myself
Within the pain,
Masking denial
I’ve myself to blame.
My mind became numb
& completely vacant,
Hitting rock bottom
I found the basement.
Older I got
The worse I became,
Suppressing myself
Hiding the shame.
I’ve had be solid
I’ve had to be strong,
To protect one other
When her nights get long.
It took so many years
Trying to survive,
Now I’m fighting to live
Fighting to feel alive.

    I’ve had to wonder, reading your works, if you come from a witchcraft background or even if you are still in it. I’m not judging, nor, condemning, just wondering. It’s just the context which you write in that makes me curious… as if you want out of your present reality.


  8. Really liked this, very powerful simplicity to this that helps it really resonate. The strength of the final lings really stirs that encouraging defiant be dammed you and what you caused I’m strong I am a survivor of life and I’ll rise to be the amazing wonder I am.
    Lovely poem. Really really like this!

    Painful and sad. Especially since the pain seems to go on and on. But I think their is a silver lining in the girl, her daughter, who she know shelters, while seeking happiness and stability within herself and her world again. Well written.
