Heya guys,
so I wrote this poem during one of my more emotional moments. I think if i am to post it, I should tell you about it. The poem is primarily about the effects of what my grandfather did to me. So here it is. I have never showed anyone.

Look at me, can you see?
The pain you helped to stitch,
Your sharp needle pushing into it.
Moulding me into what you want me to be.
An elaborate design you made into being.
A product of your stitching,
To wear throughout the day,
But what should happen when that
Fabric b-b-breaks.
You through me out,
Your smell, the daily part living
Linger though. And stay.
Your fancy handiwork,
Manipulating me, dumped,
Left to rot, knowing what you’d done
And you, living your life.
Happy as can be.

hope you like it.

Are you really what he wanted you to be? I don't think so. If you were, you wouldn't be talking about what he did to you despite his threats.

Maybe the only part I don't like is the "b-b-breaks", it just sounds weird to me; but, I'm guessing you did that to highlight the actual idea of breaking, by breaking up the word?

I understand how you feel though. It's incredible to see the abuser being completely free, acting as if nothing had happened, especially when other people even look up to him or think he's a good person. It really is disgusting.

I like the line "left to rot, knowing what you'd done". I always say that to bury memories of abuse is like burying nuclear waste. You can't see it or sense it from the outside so people may think it's no problem, but you start rotting from the inside and it ends up destroying you if you don't do something to get it out. I guess we think somewhat alike [Smile] .

I'm glad that you've found a way to vent out your feelings through art and not through something destructive [Smile] . I truly hope that you can find it in your heart to write something cheerful as well. Show me when you do, ok?

Awww thankyou nailo for postin (hugs) ... I guess what I meant by 'moulding me into what you want me to be' is that he made me silent for years, he made me hurt, he wanted me to himself.... purely his sex slave for years.
anyways Im about to post in our section (nailo xxx))
