The loneliness I feel deep within my soul
as my heart cries out with pain never spoken
from fear of repercussion
is but a reminder of the survivor in me
who failed to thrive because of you.
The loneliness I feel is a well dug by you
so that I may sit with sorrow
and remember the things you did
without knowing why.
The loneliness I feel breaks my heart open
and scrapes the scabs from scars
allowing me to speak
about the things thought Iíd forget.
