This poem was written by me around 8 yrs ago.
it was printed in a book In Cabin Six Edt. by Jill Kuhn.

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

MJ, I haven't read "In Cabin Six," but I've read excerpts from it, and "No Words" sounds familiar. Kinda describes some feelings I can empathize with but have trouble putting into words...

Vic glad you could relate, most might be able to relate to No words.

I sure can. There was noone to turn to, and what would I say.

There are no words due to fear. The fear that worse things will happen if we tell. The fear that noone will like us if we tell. We will be
branded with the letters SA.

In responce to what the father figure did after my dad died.

I did not know what to say the next day riding in the car home. Neither did he. There really was nothing he could say, he was wrong.

Michael: I feel your pain. Yes he was wrong and you did not deserve it. Did he say nothing out of shame or did he feel there was nothing to be ashamed about. Think about how old your were Mike and how vulnerable. God they are all monsters.

Thanks guys,

I still need the group hug. Not sure if I am going to MN, but plan on going to Toronto.
I want to contine to grow. I want to work on this stuff so I can live life instead of repeating it over and over. There was nothing that I did wrong. Nothing. It is his prison.
