UNSPOKEN (Please Read)

I sit, crumbled on the icey bathroom floor, shivering, head between my knees
fighting off the nausea. Sobbing Lost, Alone, Ashamed... gasping for breath,
burning from the inside out. Silent Screams fill my lungs bursting to release,
needing to rid the disgust! Broken, Battered my heart torn to pieces,
each tear like a cold blade down my fiery cheeks. Nails digging deeper into my palms,
Crimson Cresent Moons show my Pain. You look at me and Smile with those Cold, Lying
eyes. PIG! MONSTER! HOW! WHY! OH GOD WHY! I wish to scream at your Ugly Face!
I continue on suddle  locked in my prision. Flashbacks that make me Nauseaus,
Cringing inside. Tears that haunt me, reminding me at night. The aching in my 
heart Hollow and Stale. Tho I walk, you have stolen the Innocence of Life from me.

I would like to dedicate this to all the Women, to all the Children and yes even to
all the Men who are or who have been victims of sexual abuse. Every 2.5 minutes
a woman in sexually abused. To all my Brothers  and Sisters, to the Torn and Aching Hearts
stay strong, one day our tears will be heard.

    ? So very deeply and sadly moving and, holds soo much darkened truth; and yet even darker and much more lasting is the pschological abuse poured upon an innocent and unknowing life....I remember You Dear Ashley Yates, from the last time I did a tour here at Soup ~ I truly hope that Life has been treating "Your Preciousness" well ~ "Beautiful Recognition of A Very Sad Reality!!!" ~ ....Cont:)
