I wish I could make the pain stop forever. Freeze it and leave it somewhere in space and time long forgotten. I wish I could look in the mirror and not think about how broken and wounded I am. I wish I didn’t have to have a phantom of my attacker in the backgrounds of my relationships and other life events.
But wishing never solved anything...
time to start picking up the pieces
time to silence his voice
And though the pain may linger for awhile
it will not last forever, even though it feels like it may. Healing and happier days must be worth this much pain. They must be wonderful care free days.
And they must be worth fighting for.
