Not directly personal to me but never the less it is personal and I do feel the pain.

Sick minds

Your sick dreams still bleeding

Bleeding out of me

Clawing in the darkness imploring me to leave

Logic says I have every reason to remain

Ignore your twisted truth relinquish all the pain

But you killed me killed me everyday

How can you live with your memories

When my memories are forever stained

Your sick and twisted dreams coursing through your mind

Anathema, no explanation, no words to define

Now when you think of your child, innocent

Do you see the sparkle in my eyes

Or the desolated remains of all you left behind

So yes, I will never forgive you

Not now or any day

For you deserve to be haunted

Eternally, far, far beyond the grave

You killed me, killed me

Killed me in every single way.

Powerful stuff. A hurt that goes so deep the words almost bleed.

My immediate response was, "So, you've met my mother," but she's still alive, as am I, so I must have been mistaken.

this evokes sharp memories of inflicted pain, and worse, pain i've inflicted.

Very intense for me when I read this... It talks of understanding what someone else has gone through... understanding the finer points between being a victim and a victor, if that makes sense... probably not - eesh - let's talk about this one, yeah? xx

If someone is more intelligent than someone else and younger One cannot expect something better(from let's say a parent) nor is it implied that the older you are the more you should understand and behave accordingly. That's what I have understood in my personal life. The ability to think clearly is what seemingly makes a healthy mind but not by itself. The younger self has needs that need to be expressed, recognized, dealt with and feel satisfied. Get the power back. Be whole again and eager to explore what life has to offer not what that other person that got in your way has to offer you now, that person didn't help you grow as you could why help you now? Am sure you get what I mean and if not don't hesitate, ask me. A intense poem, thank you for sharing.

Though the suffering expressed in this poem is intense and fiery as a live coal, the ability to feel emotional pain is ultimately a good sign, at least in my opinion. It shows that you're a caring person and that things matter to you deeply. There many, rest assured, people who have lost the capacity to feel for others and themselves.

Very skillful the way you reprise ''killed me everyday'' in the last lines, modifying it slightly and rhyming it to ''killed me in every single way.'' The poem's tight structure is camouflaged by its fluidity and approachable language. Good, though heart-wrenching, work.

I just feel so much pain in this poem from all involved.
Strong words said.

Harsh and true to the last syllable,
a brave story told in the words from hell and from truth
