Hi Seldom,

Thanks, I am glad you can appreciate my poems. It just feels like something I have to do. It also gives what happened to me a form, not just constant telling what happened over and over, plus it concentrates on the feeling and not just the intellectualizing of what happened. Poems that just rely on intellect usually aren't all that good.

Writing a poem and having it on my blog or published, makes it almost like a tombstone of what happened. I of course will never forget, but it gives me something "solid" to show my grief of what happened. I think survivors are told so often, can't you just move on, why air you dirty laundry? Survivors are often not believed by some and having a remembrance of what it felt like, gives it some weight, but not on shoulders. I do plan to move beyond what happened to me, and I will feel different some day, but I want it to be know what abusers do to their victims, how much hurt they cause.
