Wake me when it's over

Wake me when it's over

A Poem by Nightfeather
"

It is painful to be drained of one's light but it is not painful to enlighten the temporary darkness.

"

Wake me when it’s over


I peel my skin, but the stains are still there.

Nesting in my soul, so I cannot re-forget.

These ‘monsters’ were always longing for my tear,

But their pitiful desires could never be met.

They pulled me into their darkness again,

For my pain is the thing that pity cannot reset...

 

I scream ‘stop’, but ‘their’ smiles play ignorant.

Always wishing for my life to disconnect,

Why are they so fixated on my defect…?

My happiness is raped again, pregnant of their fake judgment.

Painting my body and heart with a bruise…

And leaving me to birth their own pitiful ‘issues’,

 

They can break every bone in my weary body,

But my soul shall never succumb to their violence.

For violence is for the weak and love is for the strong!

I am not the only one that longed for a guidance,

For many have but one thing to wish, a place to belong.

So their ‘leaves’ can finally revert to their once beautiful tree.

 

They can try to cloud our sky, but our sun will always shine,

For they have overlooked our boundary.

It is time for our true selves to wake up!

Construct your ‘materials’, for our hearts deserve a buildup.

 

You told me: “Wake me when it’s over”,

I shall remind you that you are still alive,

Shall we live life, so we may reach our eternal thrive?

Open your eyes, and may our souls feel eternal rapture.

Author's Note

Nightfeather
Many hearts have been tainted by bullies or abusive parents but as long as there is hope left in thy heart, salvation and happiness will not be an impossible dream but will become a part of your reality. For pain is temporary and happiness is permanent.

I like your message of strength & resilience. Being a survivor of long-term childhood abuse, I see many aspects of my journey in your words, especially the idea of feeling broken, but never defeated. Besides the physical abuse in my childhood family, there was a culture of criticism rather than nurturing. Your 2nd stanza states this in a very original way, as I went on to be a critical person myself, for part of my life (pregnant & birthing their issues). This is an anthem for those of us who won't be permanently transformed into similarly ugly people.

This is such a strong and unique phrase. I really loved the whole poem, but these lines just captured my complete attention even after I finished reading it.

I was captivated by your word choices. You painted a beautiful yet very dark and dreary image of weakness and hope. Clever use of word play and description. I enjoyed this piece to the very last word.

Keep writing!
Thank you for sharing.
