A childhood of pain
A time for tears
No one kept out the rain
No one took away the fears

You said to trust you
and never to tell
And when it was through
no one heard my silent yell

Not knowing who to trust
No one to listen
The symbol of safety is dust
and unshed tears glisten

Why did it have to be me
This no one knows
I'll never be free
and my self hatred grows.

You killed my soul
You stole my heart
I'll never be whole
terror and I will not part

The childhood pain
The adult age
Driving me insane
All locked within this cage.

this one touches me...I understand your pain...sometimes we are the only ones who have the key to set ourselves free...give the pain back to them...it belongs to them.
with our writing... comes healing...
take care, janet marie


~Take These Tears~

Take these tears, I wont cry them anymore,
They fall like wasted wine and scatter on the floor.

Take this pain, its been here way too long,
You use it to keep a hold on me-but I'm feeling suddenly strong.

Take this shame-it always belonged to you,
Keep it with the lies you told and the broken promises too.

Take this rage...you deserve it most of all,
If you think I'm gonna get over it-your headed for a fall.

Take this silence, I know you've heard its sound before...
Its the first thing you hear...after the slamming of the door.

Janet Marie

 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.

Janet Marie,
Tears rolled down my face as I read your words, not for my own past but for yours, I'm truly sorry that you have lived this and am touched by your words of hope.  Thank you.
