The Raping

 

I use to dream of the life I would lead.

A life that I will never know.

For the pain has striped me of my strength,

as it throbs in every nerve, every bone…

Night finds me pacing my cage,

dazed,

and sleep deprived…

Too many restless and sleepless nights.

And always lurking inside my mind,

the darkness

that takes me over.

Raping my thoughts.

Turning myself against me,

until consumed by my own loathing…

the belief- I could possess no less worth,

becomes truth to me.

I use to dream of the life I would lead.

That dream,

now a nightmare, taunting-

paints its delusions within my brain.

The vision of failure complete…

finds me curled into my pain.

Into the blackness,

clinging to a flicker of hope-

that there is more to be had,

other visions to see,

another dream in my life, to dream…
