You are always there

Don’t hit me, stay back.

I’ve finally got my life on track

but when I close my eyes

I realize

that you are always there.


Little me, home from class

through the front door I pass

You grab my arm

cause me harm

because you are always there


I hide behind a closed door

spend hours weeping on the floor

I hear a crash

a louder smash

You are always there


I still wake up screaming,

nightmares, not dreaming

You’re in my room

stomp, boom

You are always there


I know that I am all alone

I know I’ve made it on my own

you’re still near

nerve-wracking fear

You are always here.
