You don't know what or how I feel

But here's my heart for you to steal

And I have a lot to heal

I want you with me now


It's so hard to open up, don't you see?

Like memories that burn, it's so hard to be me

I don't want you to know my life's been a tragedy

I need you with me somehow


So, here it goes, I just don't care

My deepest wounds, please don't stare

Or my haunting regrets, beware!

Why aren't you with me now?


Abused as a child, reliving cruelty

Broken hearted teen, they promised the world to me

Every chapter in life presents pains, sadly

I'm trying to move on without you

      I'm hoping this is fiction, either way yes, very sad but these episodes make us who we are. Hopefully stronger kinder and more caring. 💖

      • Christina8

        The cruelty part is true but it definitely made me a more caring caregiver wife and mom! Thank you so much for your kind review!

        I am so glad you have found your muse, or she found thee .. this was in all honesty sadly enjoyed .. Neville

          Sometimes it is sad but having that cruelty inflicted, can create such a wonderful caring soul. To become the exact opposite of cruel.

          You are a wonderful caring person who writes with heart and beauty.

          • Christina8

            Maxine, that was such a wonderful thing to say! I really really appreciate your kind and thoughtful words. Thank you!--Christina

              Sometimes it makes a world of difference just to hear or in our case read those words.

              Your a star 💫

              You speak the words in wonderful verse, painful but I think cathartic. The cruelty that you experienced in childhood and adolescence has given you insight that strengthens character and resolve, both of which you possess in abundance. An incredible write!

              • Christina8

                That was a wonderful review that made my heart happy!!! I will treasure that, thank you!!

                • Bella Shepard

                  It is my pleasure!

                  This is sad christina,
                  But what I've learned through my past and pain and abuse,is that there is healing and sometimes the ones that was hurt the most turn out to be the most gentle souls , like you!

                  • Christina8

                    Yes! We are two gentle souls, indeed! Thank You!!
