Abuse is all I've known.


Its the only thing I have ever known.
Abuse rape and sexual abuse.
I've met all the bastards along the way.
None of them any good.
Only the ones who have hurt me.

And I wonder only one thing.
Is there any one good out there?
Or was it just me?

People say it werent my fualt
I dont agree it must have been

    You don't need the platitudes about how things are not your fault. I have seen your poems and know that you do need to let it out though, and you do so here, and good on you. I wish you well; and it will be. I promise you. t x (Report) Reply
