|Having been an abused child myself, I know what a hell it can be. I also know
that there's mostly no way to "make it better". Life has a way of killing our dreams,
but it seldom gives us much to replace them with. I found that I could put all that
behind me though, and so should you. It does no good to dwell on what can't be

|I can feel the pain inside you. I know how difficult it is to cope with those feelings, overcome them. Some manage, some don't.
I wish you luck

|Erica, you pull at our hearts nad souls with this poem. Your pain comes through and we want to reach out to you. But you know that this is in the past. It cannot be this way today. You have come so far and your poetry has been reflecting this. Keep looking forward and taking one step at a time and living life one day at a time. We are all here for you. Your friend Bill|

"Dreams of making you love
someone like me.
The wounds opened
Bled for years..
Turning my heart anemic..
with childish want
with childish need
A face like a mask..
with no substance..
A heart with no
Afraid of you.."
