A Time For Healing

My memories are bleak
         they’re dormant in my mind
         resisting thoughts of childhood
pretending to be blind.

Insecure by your actions
          which left me isolated and alone
          all because you could not refrain
taking what you didn’t own.

Panged with insatiable hunger 
          to be free of your restraints
          hiding behind a mask of fear
on a canvas of abuse I paint.

Pallets filled with colors
          of the darkest known to man
          brush strokes with a purpose
to cover what began.

I’ve seen you since that day
          you took my innocence by hand
          eyes looking off into the distance
as in front of you I stand.

Emotionless you stood there
          unable to look me in the eyes
          glancing into a haze of darkness
of your deepest lies.

Look at me, this woman now
          who stands before you unafraid
          the one you trespassed against
as a child you betrayed.

Don’t look off into the horizon
          acting as though it didn’t exist
          A retched, foul example of a man
A soul that won’t be missed.
