My Heart Leaps- inspired be William Wordsworth

Thu, 09/24/2015 - 13:26 -- samijae

My heart leaps up,

Not in fondness,

But in fear.

Over a year of

Abuse and

Rape.

Too scared to leave.

Too scared to stay.

Bravery came at last

And I was finally free!

 

Until he came back

With a gun at hand

Had he won,

I would have been taken

Never to be seen again.

These nightmares of the past

Still continue is my head.

Making

My

Heart

Leap

Up…

Me
