I wish I could fall into a deep trance…
So, I could forget that day you stole my innocence; forget that deep throbbing pain penetrating my body, when you forced yourself onto me, threatening to tell my mother that I, just a child had begged for it!
I wish I could forget that the sun shines but not on me because you took away the brightness and I shall never see light again.
I wish I could forget the way you looked at me and licked your lips like I was fresh meat just removed from the skillet with all the juices flowing like a river of sweet honey. My mother pretended she didn’t see. How I hated you because you were her man and she believed every word you said. That night when you forced yourself on me putting your hand over my mouth so I couldn’t utter a sound telling me you wouldn’t hurt me. But you was her man and she thinking she in love, she did nothing to stop the abuse.
When I tried to tell her, she said “hush you mouth” and hissed her teeth now I wish I could forget she was my mom and how she sacrificed her child, how she bartered my flesh for her personal pleasures and now I’m here, I scarred for life.
