I'm a wanderer, a nomad...I do

Lie to me again
I know you will
Decieve this poor heart of mine
I didn't need it anyway
You caused me to be stone
Oblivious to emotion
Callous to the sound of my heart breaking
Leaving me aching
Shivering, shaking
And all you can do is say
You deserved it anyway
I've made your life a hell, you say
Well, look at what you've done to mine
The sky grows dark when your shadow appears
Coming towards me with malice in your eyes
A fist full of furry
Otherwise a brick
Hits me hard, hits me fast
Bruises me beyone comprehension
And when I cry, you look past me
Indifferent, as you disregard it
As something that I had coming to me
What do you see?
When you look at my battered face, what do you see?
A little girl who needed to be dicsiplined?
A horrible waste that needed to be shown
just how vile she was?
And what do you expect
What do you demand of me?
What is it that I should do
In order to get you to be satisfied
With what you've done?
Burn...that's what I do
I burn at the thought of you
My face hurts when I think of it
My body grows numb and incoherent
And I must remain your subservient
In order to stay in corner
You have backed me into

Love, I'm sorry about these things that have happened to you.  I can only say that they are in your past and I hope that you can see it doesn't ever have to be this way again.  You don't have to be a victim.  I love you.

Creperum...of course I know that things that have happened in my past are just that...things that happened in the past. I do not allow them to haunt me any longer, I just use them to my advantage, as wisdom and as support to those who have gone through or are going through the same thing. That's the best thing I got out of my life....WISDOM!!!!! I know that it won't happen again (at least, not as long as that "Special someone" *nudge-nudge* is in my life)

SorrowsMystress,
I admire you for having the courage to write an dshare such things with us.  This is a powerful piece that speak volumes.  I am glad it no longer happens.  Sorry that it did though.

 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

This is such an open piece of poetry, from the heart, filled with pain. It's wonderful that you have put this in perspective and can talk about it openly. You did a great job in conveying the anger at the abuser. It is a very real and powerful poem.
Good work
Liz
