Silently crying

Silently crying

Silently crying, This pain is so strong.. What did I do wrong? There’s not a day I don’t go without trying. Taking my medication and resting is not all i do. Some days I get up n run too. Thinking… Five years ago what I went through suffering in silence … A marriage full of violence.. Memories of the slaps across my face are nothing but a feeling of disgrace… How can I forget the kicks and them times he played mind tricks? Pushed on my back,being strangled and punched to the ground. Amazed at how I didn’t crack and how i Never made a sound… I...

Father

Father

Born into the hands of a tyrant, You held me closely near your chest, Enveloped me with your breath, As I listened to the sound of your heart Beat Beat Me, And, that is where it all began. Father remember how you held my hand, To pull me away from the sidewalk And put me right against a wall, Then give me your permission to walk, Because there I would find safety You said, Beyond this the world was not for me You said, Cars are unsafe and men are far worse You said, I was too vulnerable to protect myself from all this You said, So you would never let me go You said, You will take me to school...

Pieces – #Support Yemen Campaign

I sit face down head on my arms A pool of tears flowing in my palms I’m listening to cries being thrown around The walls around me are echoing the sound Making it twice as loud and twice as frightening Conflict is building up like thunder and lightening I’m only 7 years old and I hear her cries I see her tears in the darkest of nights And every time his voice is raised I want to punch his face I want to hold her close And leave this place And my heart breaks Anytime I see her face In my mind I’ve killed him a thousand times I’ve injected him with pain that I see in her eyes How...

The Death Of My Tears

The Death Of My Tears

My emotions live only to be harmed I want none other but you and yet I want you not the same Silently confiding my sadness in you from a distance How my eyes long for the affection now concealed behind a demeanour so cold As I relieve the nights of a tortured soul My heart tells me you are still my love and yet my wounds tell me it is not so I would forget it all if you would merely change Lying to myself so that I can believe your tragic lies So helpless as I see my hopes blown around like a cloud beneath the seven skies How much you have taken of me. Yesterday you promised me a thousand...

Seized

Seized

Stood up to wear a sentiment-proof vest, Walked away with pride locked safe in your chest, Where before on the soil of this battle you fought, You buried your heart, and brought forth the force of your thoughts, She prayed You buried your thoughts and brought forth the force of your sword, She offered her faith, handed over her shield, Surrendered, tendered through her own will, Ruptured her spirit to help, did all she knew, Then turned into a rose but her canker was you, She prayed She turned into a rose and her canker had grew, You sipped out of her heart to nourish your soul, Ripped off...
