I feel your hand reach out to me and tug upon the sheets.
I close my eyes and calm my heart pretending I’m asleep.
This has become routine each night, this simple game you play.
You rape me in the darkness and ignore me in the day.

I should go and tell somebody, I know that this is true.
Could go and tell a teacher, just ignore the threats from you.
But I will go to no one because the damage has been done.
I am so ashamed of what you’ve done, I won’t tell anyone.

Until a day when I wake up and I have children too.
They’ll want to stay at grandma’s, but her house is your house too.
And I would not allow you to get close enough to them.
To let you tug the sheets and repeat history again.

This poem is about something that happened a long time ago.. I am learning to let it go.

Sad one Lucie, very sad. He deserves much more than disdain.

Christopher, you feel like starting a lynch mob with me after this sub-human described above?

No-one should have to endure this.There must be some way for you to get the support you need to find and make your way out of this dark tunnel.Please,please-think deeply on this.

With you DE...ARRGGHH!


You did say it better, it's just such a tragic thing that like devine, I had to delete my original words, and leave you with a symbol of my feelings.

Again Lucie, all I can say is my heart goes out to...you are in my thoughts.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
