I sit alone and wonder why?

Why this happened to me,

I wonder why now you chose to set these memories free,

I spent so long thinking I was the lucky one, he had left me be,

But I was mistaken, fooling myself, I suppose I just did not want to see.


The flashing images that come at will,

The sights, the smells, that still make me ill,

I am older now but still that girl, I wish I could set her free,

But maybe just maybe this is how it is meant to be.


I hear her call, I hear her cry, I hear her sob at night,

I know she hurts and I feel the pain I need this to be right.

I must face this painful truth I need to see it through,

I have no future that’s for sure until I do.
