Karley Kay Poems
Hating this feeling, what's this mean?
My chest hurts, I can't breathe
My eyes burn, tears stain my face
My hands shake, can't seem to stop.
Walking down the hall, avoiding eye contact
Don't touch me, don't come closer
Suddenly afraid and not knowing why
As a group of guys come my way.
'This is ridiculous' I tell myself
'Their just guys, ' so why am I so afraid?
I get no answer, just silence
As I edge closer to the wall.
Images fill my mind as I walk
Of my past, I thought I forgot
Told myself I exaggerated
The pain I felt ...
Lying there curled up in a ball
As the memories of the past unfold again
The memories of the past I need to forget
But they come toward me faster than ever tonight.
Huddled in a corner, afraid of every sound, of every movement,
Afraid it will hurt me like he did.
