You are my subsequent nightmare
I have felt your touch before.
I hear your footsteps on the stairs
you stop outside my door.

I can visualize you standing there
your hand is poised to knock.
I feel the breath catch in my lungs
my eyes fly to the lock.

You seem to follow everywhere
no escape within my grasp.
I can not seem to hide from you
there’s no running from my past.

I search the eyes of all I meet
the windows to their souls.
When they ask about my past
the story I tell is full of holes.

I wonder do they notice
how I dodge the questions they ask.
Do they see the fear I hold inside
the "me" behind the mask?

The smile that hides the misery
the laugh that conceals the pain.
The humor that covers the agony
of having to start over again.

But I will run to the end of the earth
to keep you from getting to close.
I envision you chasing, perhaps its not true
only time and heaven knows.

My name you know, my face you’ve seen
more then my wallet you’ve stolen from me.
My future you continue to violate and rape
the same way that you once raped me.

Powerfully sad, my dear. I feel the emotion of this one well and clear. As always, you write well. This subject has the feel that it chose you tonight.

Ouch... can the world be so cruel as to allow such a one to walk free?

There is much in the poem that is reflected in me. . .

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you do so alone.

I feel your pain Lucie...and I offer you a shoulder...though I know it is little comfort.
