Feel Me...See Me (Turning From Abuse) Poem by Lodigiana Poetess

Feel Me...See Me (Turning From Abuse)

Rating: 5.0

See my face know my heart,
see my fear torn apart.
See my face look at yours,
see your hands the hurt they cause.
See the bruise, see the scar,
see the burns from your cigar.
See the tears that streak my cheek,
see me crushed and think I'm weak.
Feel me shudder with the pain,
feel me shrinking once again.
Feel no pity, no remorse,
feel the power, feel the force.
Feel the change that's taking place,
see the anger on my face,
see the light now in my eyes,
see just how I realise.
Feel me close and sense my heat,
feel me gone and hear my feet
Feel my strength to turn and say,
‘see my back' and walk away!

A topic of leaves? ? anything to do with the cigar? ? or is it as in she/he leaves? ? to MyPoemList for its good message of encouragement and maybe hope. next time, if there is one, try saying this instead: Fuch YOU! You've hurt me for the LAST TIME. For you I'd not give one thin dime. I turn my back on you; 'tis so true. This I say now: F uck U! F uck U! ! bri ;)

Piercing like pain, Brave, like born again. Touched me so deeply. Never have I read such a descriptive poem on abuse, tragically real, so deeply moving. Being able to transmit physical and moral pain so perfectly. All the abused, thank you deeply. This poem has to open many hearts. It is just, it is right, it is painful but grandiose. It must be read, felt and understood. It has the power, I hope, to provoke change. Thank you.

Thank you Sandra from the bottom of my heart..This was based on a dear friends own personal suffering and her vivid recounting to me of her thoughts and feelings..but there is some positivity to be gained from all this as she did find the strength to turn and walk away and begin life anew and although never forgotten she can now move on..I hope that these words can offer some help to those going through similar trauma.Thank you once again for your kind words. xx
