Healing


So, you’re hurting
Wanna get away from the pain, crawl right out of your skin
Can’t get those bad days out of your head, so heavy can’t even lift your chin
Honey believe me, I been there too
At night you lay in bed, feeling those hands like ghosts
They make you feel disgusting, a corrupted soul that wronged you, your anger roasts
Your sense of worth, sense of self disappear
So, you’re filled with guilt
Believe me, it’s not your fault, even if you freeze and can’t speak
You bubble over with self-hate, replaying it in your mind, you call yourself weak
That’s not you, lovely girl
I get it, that’s how it feels, just remind yourself what’s true
You’re strong, and you’re not broken, maybe you need time to breakthrough
Away from the blame, the shame
Honey, just breathe, you’re alive, let yourself heal
There’s a light in your heart, a spark in your soul, that he could never steal
So, you pick yourself up
And you carry on, through the bad days, even if it takes years
You have power that you can’t see, you’re a force to be reckoned with so dry your tears
Don’t let it consume you
You’re better than that, you deserve to love yourself regardless
Of what happened, it doesn’t have to change you, when you feel guardless
Know you’re not alone

    I identify with many of the sentiments in this poem. I like the practical aspects of being female but need to be outside. Iris difficult to be view as something other than fitting the mold.

    wait who’s poem are we talking about

  10. Zipper Wheel says:

    Short poems are brilliant and difficult to master. The greatest talent is saying more with less, saying more than personal experience, saying something irrefutably human. I should practice this more myself, but I find it a greater treasure to me to create lyrics than to free myself and others with beautiful concise truths.

  11. Megha Chatterjee says:

    I think that such poems can beautifully say a lot of things that cannot be verbally explained to people. The way your friends or relationships hurt you, a pen and paper and a poetic mind can reduce your pain. I love the power of poem writing process..

  12. April Duboce says:

    Angelique, this is bold, descriptive and beautiful. I am very sorry for the pain you went through and are still experiencing. I was raped for 4 1/2 months after my amputation. Stay strong, keep writing and know you are loved by people you don’t even know. You are a strong and courageous woman, deserving of kind and respectful love. I pray this happens for you. I will try to upload my poem about abuse to my page. Sending you hugs, strength and love.

  13. April Duboce says:

    Stacy, this is beautiful. I hear and see the meaning beneath. To heal together with this wounded bird. I can tell you have an incredibly loving soul. I wish I could meet you.

  14. April Duboce says:

    Michael, this is so very special. The love between a son and a mother is different, yet strong. I’m thrilled you had such a wonderful Mom. Your vulnerability and the integrity of this poem tell me enough about your character.You ARE a good man
