Mask of the Abuser

Masked.

Mask

English: A heavy-duty "bow rake" use...

Mask of the Abuser

Mask of the Abuser

Mask of the Abuser

 

The fear is all inclusive

As memories tear into my soul

And sleep seems so elusive

How can you still

maintain

control?

 

I was repulsed by you in every way

So I just go on remembering

How your loathsome fingers

Made

My skin crawl

and bruise

and

break

 

And my blood runs exhilaratingly cold

As I finally rise to the occasion

For you no longer can hold

My disgust at arm’s length

With you r

 obsolete persuasion

Than you can

Approach Me

within three hundred

and fifty

 feet

 

Either way you are a loser

But what more could be expected

From behind the mask

of the abuser?

I have studied revenge,

But it no longer

tastes so sweet

For my salvation

is in forgiving

Even as

my throat

burns

with your

deceit

 

But as you crawl amongst the living

I won’t forget until you are beat

With a garden rake into the ground

And your evil scales

laid low

Only then

will these memories

retreat

And slither

into

your deep

black

hole

 

On that magnificent occasion

When your frozen mask bursts into flames

And your wicked power melts into ashes

And swallows up my grievous shame

 

When your naked truth is blatant

For all who care to see

The devil

in all

his

glory

Who stole

my soul

from

me

Only then

Will

my heart

rejoice

Only then

will

my soul

be

free

About sharonsharinginsights

Namaste'! I write poetry, stories, essays, reviews, editorials, screenplays, lyrics.....you get the idea! I love to write. I graduated from UI&U in Vermont, U.S. with BA in Writing and Literature with a concentration in Women's Studies. I was chosen and interviewed as local artist for my writing on local online college magazine HOWL (circa 2003). My writings have been published in several genres and I have won numerous awards for my poetry. I am desirous of having my own collection of poetry and/or other writings published in my OWN book. I am passionate about women's issues, romance, love and a great number of benevolent causes. I am pretty passionate about almost anything that is NOT mundane or boring. I write from my soul (cliche' I know). Most of my work has been published and/or copyrighted (all either or both). My goal, again, is to publish a book of poetry, short stories, a novel, novellas, another song (collaborating with someone who writes music...hello, out there?)....OK more later, and thank you for checking me out!
