This poem is about a relationship from my childhood.

To see his face
While in wide open space
I recognized him after a while
He was a part of my life file
Sixteen years ago was the last I had seen him
I had put that file of my life on the outer rim
It was something that wasnít supposed to be
Mentioned, for he had hurt me.

I was supposed to go on with my life and pretend it
Never happened, not even a bit
Seeing him, brought back
Much pain, and of course an attack
Flashbacks, nightmares, a file open, that couldnít be closed now
I simply didnít know how
To even speak just one word to him
The pain in my heart was still there, but very dim.

For he knew what he did to me
I could see
It in his eyes
It was as evident as blue skies.
I dare not speak my heart
While standing there with my grocery cart
I knew I wasnít strong enough
Plus the words might have come out rough.

Seeing him, yes did bring back an attack
But at that moment it wasnít worth fighting back.
