Eternal Torment

Oh please not again
Please don’t leave me alone with him
I can’t say for sure, but I think that I know
What he will do to me when you go
My heart beats fast, I’m scared inside
I can’t tell you why I want to hide
You don’t understand, you just need some time
You can’t see that I’m crying inside
I fell dirty and guilty, that’s why I don’t tell
I don’t understand why I’m put through this Hell
I’m just a kid, I am not brave
He’s the adult, he should behave
But that day won’t come for a while
I try to endure and put on a smile
Oh this secret I must keep
For 10 more years without a peep
And when I finally let it out
There is no peace, there is just doubt
What have I done? I’ve made you cry.
I don’t blame you, I don’t imply
But I can see inside your eyes
You feel at fault, you’re asking why
There was nothing you could do
I kept this secret safe from you
10 plus years it’s been since then
I’ve done the work, I’ve forgiven him.

    Thank you for sharing. Poetry allows us to express what could otherwise never be put into words.

    Congrats on the feature. For a lot of kids this is an "eternal" torment. Justice?????

    Oh Kirstie, my heart goes out to this poor child, and any like her. If this is about you, to forgive they say is the healthiest thing for yourself. I am struggling with this word and what it means, and trying to write a poem about it. Forgiveness can be a powerful thing, if you are really able to do it. An emotional write that tells a disturbing story. Love and hugs to you my friend, Shar xoxo
