 Just For Thought

Intruder (about domestic violence)

Deep seeded within the depths of my being.
Black and distorted.
No cause but that of destruction.
Awakening at will.
I have no power over him.
He sleeps rarely and binds my heart
With chains.
Malicious and deceitful,
He craves power over me.
Invading my mind and controlling my world.
Vicious and relentless,
He burns down all that I have.
He beckons me and lies in wait.
He brings me to my knees.
I am helpless in his wrath.
So I hide within myself
Where my only safe haven is sleep.

For J.B. & his inspiration of this poem
