Thanks Mom - Poem by Lore Me34

You carried me in your womb.
You held me in your arms.
You told me that you’d love and protect me always.
But where were you when your husband touched me in place he should not?
Where were you when he made me touch him?
Where were you when he muffled my cries?
Where you when he told me if I told you’d die?
For years I kept my mouth shut, but not because
I wanted to. But I did it to protect you.
Now, yesterday when I told you because my mouth could
be silent no more. Instead of hugging me and saying you’re
sorry you push me away and called me a liar. That hurt me
more than all the abuse I took in silence for you. I just can’t believe
the one that I love the most don’t love me at all.
Thanks Mom! !

This poem is not about me just something I heard in my head.

    I like your poem, it`s nice to here it didn`t happen to you.

    But it does happen all the time. I had that happen as a child by my brother
    when I was young and he was drunk.

    I wrote A poem about rape it has help me deal with what has happen.
