Best Katie Livingston Poems

+ Fav Poet


im a child again
sitting down on the bed
then i see him
my whole body goes numb and cold
"its not real, its not real" 
i repeat to myself
but it is real
too real
he comes closer
and i beg him not to hurt me
but no matter how much i beg
i know its coming
i try to run, but he is too fast
i cant even make it out to the hall
he catches me 
and throws me on the floor
then the pain starts
i want to scream out for help
but no one is there
i beg him to stop
and when he finally does 
he smiles
"youll beg for that one day"
he says to me, and simply walks off
as if nothing has happened
and im alone again
i try so hard to scrub the feeling of him off of me
but it doesnt work
then the flashback is over
and im left to hold myself together
and deal with what he did
