    eyes averted
    look to the floor
    mind-numbing fear
    run for the door

    his face
    everywhere you look
    images flash
    of everything he took

    an innocent touch
    and the images are back
    beating at your mind
    until you crack

    your heart beats fast
    hands shake
    try to hide it
    but a smile you cannot fake

    run from your shadow
    hide from your friend
    seclude yourself
    wait for your mind to mend

    numb outside
    screaming inside
    need to talk
    not knowing in whom you can confide

    feel it again
    every touch, all the fears
    the humiliation
    the tears

    tear at your skin
    rip away his touch
    knowing it won't work
    but wanting it so much

    memories of bruises
    and lying on your back
    mindless terror
    in the form of a flashback

    -In case you weren't able to tell (some people can't, mostly those that haven't been through it) this is about flashbacks about my rape. I have been having them quite often, so i wrote about them. I hope you like it.:biggrin: )

    Thanks, I'm glad you guys like it. I wrote it hoping it would help my boyfriend understand why i was freaking out. Pretty much, i had one in class and ran out of the room balling. I went outside the school and screamed as loud as i could, because it was the only thing i could think of doing.And then, afterwards, everywhere i looked i saw my rapist. He didnt really understand it...and it scared him.But, this poem helped him understand it a little bit better. :)
