Letting Go
by LostHope1984

Nightmares replaying themselves in my head
As I lay here reliving those days
Those days I seeked for shelter from the storm
All those nights with you
Your eyes burned into mine
You slide your tongue across your lips
As you stared down at me
I was only a little girl
So innocent and very young
I will never forget those days
When you did things you shouldn't have
Things that would scare me so many years later
As darkness falls
I'm in his arms
My shelter from the storm
He wipes the tears off my cheeks
Whispers that I'll be fine
He understands the pain I feel from you
I really want to let go
I want to forget and let him in
I don't want to be scared of his touch
I want what you took from me
So many years ago
Will I ever be able to let you go?
