Looking Glass

I cling to fear because I
can't break free

I have tried to erase you from my
mind, however, you still haunt
my dreams

I wish I could run away
I want to scream

I abominate your appetite to administer pain

I lie in wait for the day,
when I can break free of you

Night after night,
you have attacked my entire being
physically, emotionally, spiritually

There is an open window to my soul,
but there is no one to hear my
silent cries

Confined within, are lies I cannot replace with truth

A demon lurks in the shadows, I have
to run and hide

Alone in the dark,
I put up a wall, no time to stall,
I fear for my life

 World of Abuse
abandonment is all I feel
though I know, I am not alone.

Why did you do this to me,
I am sure I will never know
Your unbearable hold, you've held over me
time to lock the door to rape
and set me free.

Dreams of a future, memories of
the past, I view these from a
looking glass

Contentment is what I seek
fulfillment of family, not abusers

I will come out on top,
cause this situation has to stop, vile men like you
are waste at my feet
I long for the day when you are caught, imprisoned, tortured and
hopefully killed for a Lifetime of agony.
