Abused! ! Poem by Becky Ginn

Abused! !

Rating: 4.4


I shut my eyes and open my mind
And let the folded memories unwind
A past so real it needs no spark
To let it come rushing out of the dark

I remember a time when I used to cry
A time when I thought the world was a lie
I remember a time when I lived in denial
A time when I didn't know how to smile

I remember a man who made me scream
During every night and every dream
I remember the man who held me down
In a sea of tears he let me drown

But...

I remember that man is now behind bars
A place where he can't see the stars
I remember a day when the future was dim
But in that sea of tears I learned to swim

I remember that I see the world as true
I can smile at everyone and I do
I remember how I climbed out of the mud
How I beat the assault and cleared the blood

I shut my eyes and open my mind
And let the folded memories rewind
The candle of my past burnt to a spark
My past has now drifted into the dark

Very powerful Becky. You are so young yet have been through so much....I'm glad to see you posting again! I hope you get the same 'release' and cleansing I do from writing. Great job. Sincerely, Mary
