Left on the floor bleeding Sitting in the shower crying As a child never understanding Waking from sleep to a beating Bleeding from head to toe Wanting to know where the hell you go Leaving the house to let the abuse happen At 5 had to protect my sister Stop his *** abuse against her Getting chased from the home Being shot at wishing he was just gone Guess you just didn't want to be alone But what you let him do was just wrong Left on the floor bleeding Sitting in the shower crying How could you let this happen

Writing did about the physical abuse that I went through and the *** abuse my sister went through
I'm bruised but I'm alright cut and bleeding but still in the fight I'm needing a reason ~ maybe a few to get through this season on to something new
We're halfway through the year that wasn't supposed to come Halfway through the fear I won't succumb to it The tears I've become numb to drip down my hard face A scarred ankle ~ the place I ran back to when I thought He ran out of grace for me
put your hand on your chest now make a cut and watch yourself bleed bleed deeply flowing flowing flowing red pouring but that heart it's still beating feel deeply alive still alive despite the pain how?
how is it that you stand there speaking and smiling? every word is a dagger in my heart. you rip and tear the walls. my heart constricts and i am not safe. who are you to do this? be silent; though it pains me still.
the balance arises she points illuminance not the right joint like the sun overdosed in the sky clouds disappear in the high flipped worlds refraction in swords
in an instant speed nightfall glitches in a scream kiss the moon in a double tick the fulls bright convincing a vision trick save the day in no way
spinal chords in the dark serenading the blue but my colors drained from every single hue the center of the system remains golden confusion enlightens a feeling so broken trapped the whole breathing and my lungs are still bleeding
