The wind rushed past my face
Didnít get me this time
I remember the stinging the last time
It will never happen again I say
The wind rushed past my face
Didnít get me this time
I remember the flashes of red
I can scream but who will listen
Everyone hears but who will listen
The wind rushes past my face
Didnít get me this time
I can remember the recovery
I still feel the burning of the open wounds
The stinging of the peroxide
It will never happen again I tell myself
The wind rushed past my face
There is now some resistance
Do I dare duck my head?
It will only come back
I have no choice but to take it
Not on the face I scream
I guess I lied to myself again

Your poem hit home with me. This is one of my own pieces below. I will look forward to seeing more of your poetry here.


Memories of Me

Do you wake up in the night
Wishing I was yours again?
Do you sleep with dreamsÖ
Memories of me
My heart in your hands
Your hands 'round my throat
Eyes black, tears of blood
Streaming down my face
A chill on my soul
Fearing your screams
Your hatred
Nights wasted with no rest
Afraid to close my eyes
Demons in my dreams and
One beside me in bed
Do you wake up in the night
Wishing I was yours again?
Do you sleep with dreamsÖ
Memories of me
Taking out your existence
Cleansing my life of you
Leaving you there
Never beside me again
Yet always behind me
I look to the future
With always one glance back
To make sure you are not there
Sleeping with one eye open
Never knowing full peace
Living for the day you are gone
And I find sweet release

countrygirl and caroline: Both poems are excellent... both situations horrific.
