The pain and fever are back tonight
Haunted hallucinations are all in sight
Shiver and shudder with hot and with cold
Nowhere to run, so I’ve been told
Bundled up from fear or flu
Suppression of memories all from you
This isn’t the first time, or the last
Reliving the demons of my past
With icy knife pressed to my neck
Trying to keep emotions in check
Words meant to torture, grunted so slow
I’ll never forget them, but you already know
You left me there beaten and shattered
Of course to you, none of this mattered
The smell of the drugs permeated my skin
Engraved in my memory, the barrier too thin
Morning shall come and wake me from sleep
I’ll bury these memories once again so deep
One day I’m sure that time will tell
You’ll find your demons and rot in hell

Hi, CloudySky,
Words meant to torture, grunted so slow...You left me there beaten and shattered... Too many people, especially women, experience such pain at the words and hands of another. Your poem has powerfully captured Hell, with its icy knife pressed to...neck.
Wonderful, CloudSky, I would have to say you have witnessed the torture of which you write,and you write it so eloquently,but to look back on the situation and realize, there is satisfaction of knowing what someone reaped. Larryangel yay scold
Oh my Cloudy, I have lived this poem myself years ago. It hit home!~ I have felt this way and wished the same on the he who didn't see me or what he was doing. Thanks for keeping it real and reminding me of my path. Hugs.
