PTSD

I remember…

I remember nothing.
My memories don’t serve me
like peace doesn’t serve you.
As if you went to Korea for war
And never came back. 
even though, I see you every day. 

When you give me that look
Control and abuse exert into the air
As my innocence and love 
Leave the room. 

I remember being terrified, 
But mostly hurt. Hurt from
You causing the pain.
Hurting my mom physically
And hurting myself emotionally.
You griped her neck, like a 
Batter with one strike left grips
A bat, hitting for home.  

I remember running out the house; 
Running from the person I’m 
Supposed to love and want.
Someone who is to teach me how
To love. 

I only learned how to hate.

I remember the absence of innocence
I cannot recall bliss.

I remember abuse, I remember pain.
I remember nothing.
