Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction
mental scarsAlways on the edge, looking over your shoulder
Is this any way to live?
Watching what you say and to who
Watching what you give
Accused of everything but done nothing wrong
A prisoner of your mind
Can you escape his hurtful ways?
All you want him to be is kind
Fear keeps you there within his reach
To scared to run and hide
To stupid to survive on your own
You’ve been conditioned to believe
His words stamped on your brain for life
Confirmed day by day
What a big man, to call you names
He needs the power play
He needs to feel tough and strong
To bring you to your knees
He undermines every action, every word
But nobody ever sees
Things are hidden behind closed doors
He is judged by the outside world
People only see what they want him to see
It’s all a matter of pride
These men exist in two different worlds
The public and private don’t meet
The general public sees the perfect man
At home you feel the heat
How often do you dream of escape?
How often do you wish him dead?
Do your dreams include an abuse free life?
Do regret this man you wed?
Imagine you’re free without his control
To live life as you see fit
Imagine you have total control
Imagine crawling out of this pit
You need your inner strength for this
The strongest you’ll ever be
You will dodge the abuse, dodge the fist
Deep down you’ll have quality?
I know you’re scared, I know it’s hard
It’s the last time you will cry
Pull out your power get out of here
Or as sure as day, you’ll die
You may not die, be buried or burnt
It’s your spirit he will kill
You’ll be left with nothing inside
An empty emotionless shell
I know what it’s like I’ve been there too
The mental scars don’t show
The words and abuse burnt into your brain
How deep? Only you will ever know.
