i still think of you often
whether im with people or by myself
i think about the way you touched me
the way your warm pink lips felt against my collarbone

then i thought about what actually happened

i dont think of you often
neither by myself or with people
i think about the way you hit me
the way your warm pink lips sputtered those words

i hope i never think of you

clouds
when i tried to get better in the past
it felt like i was surrounded by water
drowning in it

when i thought i got better it felt
like every time i took a breath my
lungs filled with gasoline

when i got better it felt
like i was swimming in a pool of
flower pedals

i felt stuck for so long
now i am in control
and i am floating on clouds

hurt
in my 16 years of living i have never been more lost

he is gone and he broke me in the process
i healed
she died and i am now broken after healing for so long

she sold it after everything ive loved has left she really sold it
i am loving again
he hurt me broken and healing is no more
i am numb
i hurt me and i can now feel again but only for a little bit
i dont want to do this anymore
he is gone and im starting to feel
i still am broken
i am different and im starting to heal
i can still see my past
i am a different person now and my past no longer is looked at
i am loving, i am healed, i dont look back
i am better and thats all that matters

Working out the kinks
kailee cardinal Jan 2019
“I love you” he says
But I cannot love back
How am I supposed to love when he took advantage
How can I trust when he did it
“U know I do too” I say
Because I cannot say the words

memories
still live on in my mind and
heart where they are now scared
thoughts fill my sad sad mind and i cannot get rid of them either
  he is still there, behind me every noise ,i jump out of fear cause of his lies
scared he will come back and hurt me the way he had hurt me before i left
he knows i am scared because of the way i am with him around girls
i was so young when he hurt me that it is now within thoughts
 to grab my knife when i hear a knock at the door or a creak
in the halls, i have lost my once sane mind to him
  mace and a pocket knife on my key chain
 so scared he will come back
 and hurt me everything
is so ingrained
   within
me

kailee cardinal Nov 2018
" leave a voicemail after the beep"

mom,
why do you do it
why do you put up with his lies
why can nobody see it
that when he hits you and denies it hes lying?

why cant i sick up for you

why can i be there for you

i hear screams and a body hit the floor
but i still stay in my closet
hidden in the clothes i never bothered to put away
i know they aren't dark circles under you eyes

but mom tell me this when dad looks at the girl
in a see through shirt and you say something
all of a sudden
when we get home
his knuckles are raw
and your bleeding
what can i do
i want to help

i'm sorry i know what pain he is causing you
i really try to help but im too scared
scared of what hes done
i cant fend for myself

mom,

i learned to freeze and take it
but how do i cover the bruises and scars
why couldn't i learn the first time
or even the second

i'm sorry i learned after you
i'm sorry you are six feet under and hes still alive

love
kailee cardinal Nov 2018
i saw a red red rose
i gave her a bright red rose
she gave me a a big huge kiss
the red red rose turned a dark maroon
i gave her a long huge big loving hug
the red red rose drooped over
i gave her back the keys
the red red rose died
i drove away

how it starts
kailee cardinal Nov 2018
flower pedals clog the drain
purple blue red and green
the water starts to rise
the boiling water burns my skin
the flowers sink
the water turns black
the tub starts to overflow
water everywhere
im strapped to the floor now
every breath is full of black water
till i cant breath anymore
the flower pedals go down the drain
the water dissipates
its clear going down
my body left exposed
the door opens
and im no longer gasping for air
im gone
this is what my depression feels like

dear abuser,
kailee cardinal Nov 2018
im not going to give you credit
and say that you are the one that
you obliterated my life
because i can do that by myself

im not going to give you fame
by saying you tortured me
because i can do it

i am going to tell you
you made me strong enough to leave
and smart enough to know when to leave
im not romanticizing abuse im just stating what i know abuse to be

love is still love
even with the bruises
the blood and bare knuckles

death is still death
even with the sorrow
the grief,hate, and tragedy

i am still me
even with the scars
the mental illness' and the past

why cant i be me around you?
is it because of the way we love?
or is it because of how he died?

my generation
kailee cardinal Nov 2018
futile people are becoming less
of a run-in and more of a day-to-day occurrence
mental health is on a deep spiral because of the
trauma placed upon most women and some males
love has turned into a "thing" between people
what the **** is a thing
and why do most lovers have one
instead of a relationship
instead of a "thing" its now ****
and that is now accelerating
my sister, brothers, mother, dad, acquaintances, and strangers
i fear you all cause even a brother cant be loyal.

my life is full of ****
just like the world as of...
well always

I want to be different

Well that can just go away
I want
To be

Your fingers are like razors
On my body
Cutting deep and sliding along every inch
You cut my insides
When i say it hurts it gets deeper
Making it one-sided consent
You cut the places you shouldn't have
Now i am scarred
And scared

The words you use to hurt me
Rip it like the used paper in my journal
Nov 2018 · 379
i loved you
kailee cardinal Nov 2018
Slide your fingers along my body
Your fingers like razor blades
Cutting deep
Along every curve, every crevice, everywhere
Kiss me where you want even my lips
I know i know
that kissing on the lips mean “too intimate”
But so is what we are doing
Keep it a secret and when it gets out
Let your voice box play the same scratched record
“That lying **”
Then come back and fill the holes of my heart
But i know you want to fill my other ones instead
Tell me you like it when i do that thing with my mouth
But little do you know my mouth
Holds power
Even though I am your greatest accomplishment
I am in your closets covered in dust
But is still always there for you
My body is washed of you
But somehow the water
Is red as i drain it
Use my body for a different kind of trophy
I want you to paint the world on my back
So i dont know whats to come of my life
you will be the death of me
My death is going to be a sleep with no dreams
And no point of waking up
Even with the slightest touch
Or the loudest whisper
The voice that made my day could be
The very voice that sends the feeling of nails running down my back
Claws like the ones on that guy who
Said he loves me
His voice so sincere when she talks to me
But too hurtful to believe

You are the reason i love
To write

I would always write to you in jail

You are the reason i don't know
When to cry

I would always cry when i saw
Your back turned because i was
Afraid it was the last time i would see it

You are the reason i write with
Such motivation

I would always be motivated to convince you
That you should come home

You are the reason i am afraid to love

I would always have a part of me that was shattered
After you left

depression is something that haunts us all

hopeless hope
kailee cardinal Oct 2018
He stares as I stand upset and distraught
A single tear leaves a trail tinted black
The sun shines as he thinks i should be taught
He grabs my soft delicate face then smack

I fell so graciously to the cold floor
My body numb and weak as he grabs me
He spoke with the ****** up words “stupid *****”
He pushed me down; finally let me be

I couldn't help just laying there in pain
My face bleeding red so blank and dead
He strips off his shirt with a dark bloodstain
him coming back okay is something i dread

I hope there is a day where i bleed out
But that is the only thing i much doubt

— The End —
