Haunting Memories

Haunting Memories The Safety Zone It feels like I have wind chimes in my feet The tingling feeling is that intense Pins and needles keep pestering me But obedience is my best defense Every single step is a painful memory Of the childhood I never got to see Walking on glass eggshells metaphorically Watching my feet continually bleed Too young to understand what was happening So obediently I tried to be brave Every night I had to cry myself to sleep I hadn't even lived yet but wished for my grave Punishment handed out like it was an offering Like my pain was some sort of sadistic prize Hiding away in the backyard that covered me Holding my breath and closing my eyes bmdavey@05/18/16

It sounds very painful, Brian. Sorry if it really happened to you. (love the first line about wind chimes in your feet).
