How Do You Heal?


Scratch away those bites
Scrub away those kisses
Wash away those marks
Until all thats left are the scars

You'll see him in every person
Hear him in every voice
Relive what happened through dreams
Until it's all consuming

You'll cry all alone at night
You'll jump at every touch
You'll see things no one else notices
You'll recognize the signs

He'll get away with it
You'll never be the same
Then what do you do
To gain the normalcy from before

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
