I will Reclaim,
unknown

Sulky face, droopy eyes, everything is just an
 1
“I don’t know” lately.
 2
Old enough to make my own decisions, but not mature enough
 3
To make the right ones.
 4
Closing my eyes, brief images of that night flash before me.
 5
My head bangs against the hard, cold tile.
 6
I could only feel your hands tightening around my waist,
 7
I hear you in my head…your deep… deep sighs.
 8
 
 
Waking up hours later, a gust of wind blows across my face.
 9
Looking around, I realize I’ve been ‘dumped’ off on the neighborhood street corner.
 10
Confused as hell, I run inside my house and lock myself in my room.
 11
Staring at the reflection in the mirror, I see a girl with
 12
Messed up hair, runny mascara, bruised lips, and red tears.
 13
I will one day reclaim what was taken from me.
 14
 
 
I’ve been walking up this road
 15
To find that for every step I take forward,
 16
I’m really going back.
 17
Sometimes it seems like the answer is right in front of me,
 18
Yet I still search.
