And just for thought...
I remember when I heard the thought.
It was just another horrible fancy.
It would never happen to me.
I recall a day with him.
He smiled slyly and stole a kiss.
That's all I needed back then until my bridges came tumbling down.
I remember when she vowed her soul to me.
She took my hand and washed my tears.
I needed more.
I can still hear him.
I can feel his breath on my skin,
his lips on the nape of my neck.
I recall my moans.
No, it would never happen to me.
I was always too smart for my own good.
I can still feel him,
the nightmare that he became.
I remember how fast I ran
and how quickly I wanted to forget.
All I needed was to forget.
I recall them all, let them fall away.
Perhaps I was not what they needed
or exactly what they wanted.
Still, never was I the victim.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
