Your words still hurt like glass shards long after I pulled them out of my maimed and broken body
I waited an eternity for somebody to fix me
and pray that I'll never be afraid again.
I waited eternity for the tears and the shaking to cease, and for the fear of you to leave
I waited in vain for death and its offerings in blissful sleep
I prayed though my faith was beginning to falter and fail
I prayed for an end to the darkness and for the sun to shine again
I prayed for light
and for the will to survive.
