Repressed Memories - Poem by Bridget Bush

from the mouths of babes
with lizard's tongue
they feed the rich
and kill the young
with vacuum seals
and pains that last
going to hell
for things in the past
if it wasn't for them
I wouldn't know how
should of buried the hatchet
wish I would have now
didn't want to get dirty
though I was covered in mud
would never have done it
if it weren't for the blood
anatomical features
bound in chains
never would have happened
if it weren't for this water in my veins
not thick enough
for family ties
yet hidden for years
only hearing lies
memories brought up
thanks to a porcelain god
following little rat
chasing the piper squad
the kings and queens
of several years past
did not know
the fire would last
to engulf the hatred
feuding rage
they didn't know then
I was too old for my age
although they know
18 years their lips sealed
through my own vengeance
is the only way to be healed
pointing fingers
at the wrong
not knowing the truth
for so long
I remember
now feeling distraught
things being done
never getting caught
digging deeper
and feeling insane
falling faster
from things not mundane
too many secrets
a devil wouldn't tell
unforgiving bitch
destined to Hell
asenine rain
washed over my face
hidden beneath
not shown in this place
smiles fading
moods high low
due to this
because I know
stories fabricated
right not told
knowing the truth
making me feel old
trying to be free
but things won't halt
can't be seen
because it's all my fault
