Poem: They Say

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

They say with time it gets better
They say you stop asking why
They say talking helps
They say writing helps
They say you’re safe
They say it can’t happen again
They say he can’t reach you again
They say relax
They say be happy
They say stop looking over your shoulder
THEY don’t know that the fear never stops, never goes away, the shadows never leave, and the hands never stop.
THEY don’t know that he is always behind me, reminding me, reliving it, and never forgetting.
THEY don’t know.

– Z.T.
