You Still Haunt Me

You Still Haunt Me

A Poem by Dove

They say time heals everything

If that’s true then when will I stop bleeding?



When will I stop pleading?

I had a bright light in my eyes

And you took that away from me

Every single time I cried

And every single time you laughed in response

I don’t understand why you had to prey on me

I’m your god dam child

Covered with sweat

I’m awake and afraid

But still lying in my bed

I keep seeing my assault in my head

I reach under my pillow and pull out my knife

Slice slice

Now I can go back to sleep

I have writers block like to the tenth power. But here you go.

You are not alone, I too understand what it is like to have the monster on the wrong side of the door. Stay brave.

there was a twist there - I thought it was for a lost love at first
but it seems to be more of a family thing - an abusive parent perhaps?
it's quite dark at the end too

this sadness berets the person, the poet within but humility will bring you back some bliss and the war in your heart will be over and soon there will be no sadness that could ever deride you or deprive you of feeling life passion and sunfelt kiss

Wow this is very powerful and made me feel a lot sadness and pain about the subject matter and what happened. The way you put it all into words is truly profound its a piece of art. Great write!

To purge and release, this holds such power! A great piece showing the reader such turmoil, they can feel it! Precise and this! xoxo

:) Tenth power is rather high, :) Especially to write something so... sadly ... I'd say beautiful, but it's not a beautiful thing that happens. Wonderful poem. :)
