Powerless I was,
Even with my screams,
No one could hear me.
Ashamed of all that had occurred,
I could not even speak a word.
Then secrets stirred within me,
I could barely speak or breathe.
Battered and broken,
That is how you left me.
Fear ran deep within my veins,
Yet you were left without any pain.
Sly you were sneaking off without a trace.
Never paying the price for the mistakes you made.
Looking over my shoulders days after day,
You presence all around me you really never went away.
Threatening words and sharp tactics,
Oh how you were very sporadic.
Clever and witty you always found your way to me,
No matter how far I ran there, you would be,
Always making sure your secrets still stayed within me.
For I held the hand that could change a lot of lives,
You never wanted your secrets to come to life.
Therefore, you kept doing all cruel things just right.
But now, I have to say I have had enough,
For its time for you to get in touch with some pretty rough stuff.
For I can no longer be a battered shell.
I thank you for teaching me oh so well,
How to be sly as you to get out of this hell.
For one can only take so many bruises for keeping your damn truth,
Its time to fight back with all that disgust I have for you that has stewed deep within me,
And for you to see with open eyes the man you truly are inside.
I no longer will be your victim or be victimized.
