No Words

There are no words to
describe my pain
explain how I feel
Tell you I'm hurting.

There are no feelings
left in my body
they all left
The day you hurt me.

There are no tears
to be shead
because there are
No words inside me.

No words only numbness
feelings severed from my body
ripped from my soul
By your bare hands.

By M. Joseph

Printed in "In Cabin Six" EDT by Jill Kuhn

It has been 25 years since the abuse with the father figure ended. I wish it had not done so much damage. Now I am still moving forward somehow. No words, no words, scared like shit. Abuse is so shameful, I hate it.

My counselor said I need to take the lable of father figure off the abuser and put it on the men in my life who did not hurt me.

So I guess he will be known as the asshole, the bastard, ect. the one the hurt me

Right now I wish I wasn't so confused. I wish I could erase it. At least I have words now.

This can also be found in Silence!

It is very hard to talk, then and now.

I want to thank Jill Kuhn for editing the book "In Cabin Six", which this poem that I wrote is in. A friend of mine, Ken, told me about her and the poems from survivors that she wanted. That is why this poem was written.
