The prison wasn't mine at last it was yours.

Blame is a tricky thing isn't it?

If you are a friend leave me a responce,

I need positive messages at the moment.

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around and choose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be
Rogers Waters/Pink Floyd

It makes me wonder what inspired "The Dark Side of the Moon"

Hang in there. The closer to home you get, the harder it gets to break the silence. It's a rough ride, but it's worth it.

Right on! Great poem!

The way I see it now, my perps are the ones who are in a prison--of their own making! They made it for me but I am breaking free!

Thanks for sharing that, Michael Joseph!

And thanks Devon, for sharing those powerful words of Pink Floyd. Someone in that group has got to be a survivor or close to someone who is. That's a survivor group if I ever heard one. "Dark Side" was one of the first albums I ever got. Yeah album--so it dates me! \:o

Another great survivor group of a different kind is Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers: "Won't Back Down," "Refugee," "Runnin Down a Dream," etc.

Take Care Guys

For some reason this poem is different for me. I am not sure why. I really like the end, "the prison wasn't mine at last it was yours." The blame was put on me too, my perp. said we were doing something wrong the night he ended it.

It is not my prison cell, and I will not live there. He must live with all he has done to all the boys he has hurt.

Including ME !

It is strange what the abuse does to us.

Look at all the time I have spent in getting over being abused. Time I could have been using for other things.

I am me and that is who I will be.

I am wounded, and I am healing too.

We are all wounded in some way.

What matters is what we do to keep living.

so much goes on day by day hour by hour

inspiration for a poem

then it takes a while to live what the poem says

Sometimes I am still in the prison

Sometimes I hurt

Sometimes it is not so bad to be alive

Sometimes I am actually glad to be here

I need to cry
I need to be held
the child inside is hurt and lonely
I need my friends to help
I am tired of doing it alone
