Awake all night,

the fear replaying

with overtones of hate;

Mind and body

entwined in one defense

against this now-frequent fate.


Trying to make sense

of this action,

 the torment;

all the while thinking

of happier times

before life began this descent.


Footsteps in the hall,

no safe place to hide

except deep within herself;

As the door creeps open,

the familiar shadow draws near

bringing the now too frequent

event of abuse,


Into the recesses,

memories fill the void;

a temporary respite

as the body betrays the mind,


No one to tell,

doubts of sanity

replace the  innocent thoughts;

ďThe quiet oneĒ others think,

but inside the screaming,

the emptiness,

a world shattered by this history.


Strength comes from the decision,

today is her tomorrow,

tomorrow begins the rest of her life,

the rest of her life

will be in front of her now,

for this victimís, no longer,

she has decided to tell.

I've gotten woefully behind in my reading, EJ, but thought I'd stop in and see what's new. This is a very stirring and powerful piece of poetry. I also loved Until They Fly as One.

This harrowing story happens all over the world thousands of times daily. This poem does a superb job of making it universal.
