Treasure Island

Rebecca Hall

I remember

I remember when you pulled my hair
I remember when you struck me with the back of your hand
Why did you do it?

I remember when you used to scream in my face
I remember hiding under the table when you were mad
Why did you do it?

I remember when you guys would fight and you threw things at each other
I remember protecting my younger sibling
Why did you do it?

I remember I tried to be perfect
I remember wanting to run away at the age of 5
Why did I do it?

I remember having nightmares and no one was there to comfort me
I remember crying myself to sleep
Why did I do it?

I remember feeling alone
I remember starting my spiral of self destruction
Why did I do it?

I remember the first time I self destructed my skin
I remember the first time I felt unworthy
Why did I do it?

I remember the first time my mom threatened to kick me out of the house....I was 10
I remember everything
What is wrong with me?

I want to forget

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
