A poem I'm working on writing - May 28th 2016, 07:59 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm so sick of wanting to die. I wake up in the morning and see images flash in my head of nights I lost control and the faces of men whose eyes are just a colorless waste land. Blurred figures stand over me and I count the seconds till it's over. I keep telling myself: I've been through worse, I can make it out of this. But what if this right now is the worst thing? I come back and lay still on the sheets sweaty and I remind myself I'm safe. I plan out my death like a fighter pilot plans his attack. I am dripping with self-deprecating words and the thoughts? They don't stop. I stare at these scars and wonder if I was just a little stronger I could have stopped myself. As a girl my life was the injustice that occurs before the law and order theme song. Which sounds trivial but maybe if I had had an Olivia Benson I could have made a better life for myself.

I think this is well written, I'm sorry you've gone through this. I think a lot of abuse victims wish they had an Olivia Benson by their side, and especially as a child going through trauma children shouldn't have to experience. If you ever need to chat or want to reach out to us, don't hesitate to.

The emotion and description in this are amazing. Stay strong, you can do this!

Let it come and let it be...

I really like the emotion behind this, and the reference at the end. I'm curious, though: you said this was a poem you were working on, so does that mean this is the finished piece or just what you've done so far? Either way it's really good, and I hope to see more of your work in here sometime.

just because it hurts to go on
doesn't mean the battle can't still be won

This is really powerful and I can relate to a certain extent so I hope you're hanging in there. I would like to read the rest of the poem, if you decide to add more that is.
