The windows of darkness steals her soul
Takes her to the deep abyss,
Where her cries are left unheard
Her self was his, it's what he stole.

Cold, so cold, her feelings deep
No-where to turn, weary she sits
Frightened and lonely, so scared to reach out
No faith, no hope, she sits and weeps.

My adult self I'm lost within
Powerful memories, that clench me tight,
Engulfs my mind so I don't forget
So close am I to just give in.

Oh how I cry for my self so small
Forlorn and lost, so out of reach,
Whispering gently, I tell her I'm here
I'll keep you safe, tear down your wall.

Her eyes, the window of so much hurt
Deep within, she has no trust,
blame is what she puts on her self
Shackled to the memories, with no self worth.

Her voice so silent, I listen in hope
But gone is she, my mind does scream,
DON'T go, hang on, I love you, I cried
Without you I'm scared, I just can't cope.

In a corner she sits, the darkness her sky
Nothing I say will win her trust,
She's resigned herself to the fate at hand
In herself she sees that's the way she'll die.

My inner child is hurting with pain, frustrated and neglected, abused and ignores me. She is hidden from view so deeply hidden, nothing will help with her escape.

I write this and share this with you as these are my feelings, my hurt, my pain right now, trying so hard to reach that little child in me and I can't, I wrote this for all those who are also having a hard time reaching out to your inner child, just know that we are not alone♥

I wrote this poem because a dear dear friend has been affected by Domestic abuse and violence.  She is very special to my heart and it hurts me so much to know that she had to endure this terrible injustice to her.  She will forever bare the scars from her abusers, even now after all these years she lives in severe pain and  has many many medical problems..  

Kris I dedicate this poem to you..Love you to the moon and back ♥♥


Tear drops form upon her cheek
Her eyes are filmed with tears,
Swollen from the beatings
Crying softly, so no one hears.

Too afraid to run for safety
To live a life of peace,
She knows that he will find her
And the beatings will never cease.

She hears his pounding footsteps
She cringes deep inside,
Can't bare to look as he comes in
But there's no where she can hide.

His eyes so dark and evil
His fists were clenched so tight,
His nostrils flared insanely
Oh what gives him the right.

"Please don't hurt me," she begged of him
I'll do anything you say,
Nothing he heard would change his mind
As he cracked her head that day.

You're MINE to do as I do please
You'll NEVER be set free,
And he threw her down upon the floor
Cracked her ribs hard with his knee.

She cried so hard, but all in vain
A blow went to her head,
Blood poured out, she lost consciousness
As he threw her on the bed.

He ripped her clothing from her
She wished that she were dead,
To end the years of torment
For she knew what lay ahead.

When done he lay beside her
His stench, it made her sick,
Too afraid to make a sound or stir
The hours, how the clock did tick.

She waited as he fell asleep
To wash the grime away,
The water felt good upon her face
Dear God, please help, she prayed.

No answer came from God above
As she dried away the tears,
She knew she'd face his wrath again
It followed her through the years.

The beatings have taken a toll on her
Her body is racked in pain,
She knows that by staying with him
She will never be the same.

One day she gets the courage
To leave this man so cruel,
To get some help before she dies
GUILTY, the judge did rule.

I am not a victim anymore
I'm a SURVIVOR, is what she said,
No silence will I give them
Our voices they will dread!!!
