A Poem Titled Trapped

Abusive Relationship - 9/27/01

At the age of 19, I had entered into an abusive relationship that would last three years. While in that relationship, I kept what was happening a secret from my family. I was ashamed of many things that were going on. I won't go into detail about what happened but it was the darkest moment in my life. I wrote a poem to express how I felt. I've only shared this poem with a few close people, this is the first time publicly. This is what it says:

Pain

Slamming of a fisted hand in anguish

Lonesomeness creeping through my soul

Questions lurking in my desperate mind

Nothing seems to fill the void

Hope

The day I left him

Shattered by the attempt not accomplished

Devastation blankets my world

Fear

Overflowing, as a child in the night

Unable to fight back

Three long years of torture

Never to escape

Like a prison, I had no rights

He was my unwanted shadow

      Great start! I can't even remember writing my first poem but to this day, I have to agree, it certainly does feel good to write them :)

      Thank you. This is the only poem I have ever written. I don't even know if it's any good, just know it's how I felt. Felt good to write it. :)

      This is sad, no one should go through an abusive relationship. I hope it helped you to express it in a poem here at the hubs. Thankfully you are away from this person and having a better life now. Welcome to the hubs, you will find creative writers and many understanding and helpful people here.
