Scared

By MwsR

You held the power once,

The very thing I needed you could not give me.

The power you had was something nightmares were written about.

It’s like you were possessed, definitely obsessed.

The effort you put into being a bad person should have clued you in…

I was absolutely scared of you back then.

Each weekend went the same

You were out to assert your will.

I was an unwilling participant, but it did not matter.

The hurt, the doubt, you cast my way, it crippled me.

It showed me how in my adult world, not to be.

The effort you put into being a bad person should have clued you in…

I used to be absolutely scared of you back then.

Now it seems life has reinvented itself for me.

I am loved by some and that seems to keep me above the pull of your memories.

I receive the love I dreamed of, to have from you back then.

Stronger, I am.

Hurt, I’ll always have.

The effort took for me to be a good person, now, should clue you in…

I am not scared of you anymore, but perhaps you are the one who’s scared, now.
