Deceitful Security - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

I feel you even when you aren't there
And these feelings, they're too much to bear
You are under my skin, hold a permanent place
All because of those events I just can't face

Are you happy now? Now that I flee from life
Hide in the rooms I long to burn, grasping the knife
Because I can't forget you, the mark you so graciously left
You stole a lot from me and still haven't paid for that theft

I can still hear you here whispering deceitful words of security
While you took away my everything, burning me with impurity
I remember your hands, your breath, and your eyes as I cried
Pleaded with you to let me be, you said I could go, you lied

So now I can't leave this place, too far gone in my own mind
No evidence or a body will those desperate souls find
Once I called them friends but you showed me reality
There is no friendship or love just advantage and brutality
