A wrong word uttered
Evil thought processed
Misunderstood action
Important moment forgotten
‘I’m sorry’

Been let down,  attacked
Unwanted advance
Nasty words gifted me
Over again;  must be deserved
‘I’m sorry’

An empty stomach
Blood drenched skin
Push away loving arm
Prescribed, dutiful punishment
‘I’m sorry’


Each time I think I’ve forgotten 

You lean over; 

Smirking, reminding me

What you stole

You will forever be present

Inside my head

Letting me know my bodies 

Not my own

I will never get back that which

You took away

And you will always know

You own Me
