Janet Marie- Thank you, I am glad that my poetry has touched you. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you want to look at it, this isn't the thing in my life that troubles me most. I wrote this after reading a poem in Teen by a girl who had been abused by her father. It stirred up old, dormant memories.
Michael- Thank you. I have never had much difficulty writing about the horrors of my life. Writing has always been a sort of release for me. It is the only place where I can express any emotions I want without fear. My experiences with abuse arent even that extreme. Except for that one night, the individual episodes werent that extreme. Of course, I am going off what I have heard from my parents. Except for that one time, I cannot even remember them hitting me. I have blocked out much of my childhood memories
Eloise- Thank you, and sharing this stuff really helps me, so thank you more for replying
Oh, and I added 2 new stanzas to it, and changed a few lines that didnt quite fit.
