Blankie

Hid under the dirty blankets No one will see. Hide it and no one will see. Hide it under the dirty blanket, blankie hides it from me blankie hides it from me. Dying death hurts blankie blankie can't hide it from me. Pain is to harsh blankie can't hide it from me. Hid is no good blankie don't worry blankie I can see. Give it to me, I know what to do with it now. Hid is not right not for you or me give it light let people see. But thank you blankie for shielding me. Thank you blankie for Loving me.

Many of us, Dan, still carry around our invisible security blankies to cuddle under when we are hurting. I liked your line about giving it light, let people see. Yes, letting people in helps to heal our hurts. Letting God hug you, also helps. And warm hugs from me, too. Darlene

As children we seek whatever comfort we can. No child should have to endure such sorrows. If you have a chance read my poem The Canvas.

Haile, Yes you are right about letting things out, this is hard to do sometimes because we fear shame and weakness, when in reality we receive love and strength.

Profoundly moving Dan. I don't think abuse every goes away, we shove it to the back of our minds trying to forget it because often it is too difficult to EVER deal with. I heard the silent cries! Blessings

Connie, With much help from many, I have come to believe that the only way to heal from this is to forgive, self and violater. Thanks for your reply, I hear your sincerity.

You depicted well the abuse and the shame that is associated with a demeaning crime. Victims -- young/old male/female blame themselves and want to hide the shame. The "blankie" in your poem serves many functions . . . comfort, shield, love . . . personifying the help victims need. Well thought out -- awesome job.
