"I look around and see familiar things"
by Tia Ferguson
I look around and see familiar things
But nothing that would put a smile on my face
Someone violated me by forcible nature
Now I don't want to live in this place
I cry because it hurts
I'm angry because I feel used
How can someone do this to me?
In my mind I feel nothing but confused
I don't know what I need
Should I even be looking for comfort?
Even with my need being met
There isn't anything that could stop the hurt
I feel like my image has been stolen
The main reason that I exist
Who am I now that my image is lost?
A prisoner being dragged down by my wrist
Surrounded by these four walls
Bound because I'm too afraid to leave
I'm feeling one step away from breaking down
If you could see my thoughts you would believe
They say that things happen for a reason
And that most things you learn on your own
How do you deal with severe tragedy?
And a house that's no longer a home.
