Living in Fear

Daily Prompt: Fright Night

Do you like being scared by books, films, and surprises? Describe the sensation of being scared, and why you love it — or don’t.
I do not like being afraid.  I am not a ‘ride’ girl, skip the roller coasters and stuff.  And skip the horror flicks.  I guess it comes from all the times I was terrified in my own home behind closed doors.  That’s what happens when you live in Domestic Violence.  There is a reason people call one person the “abuser” and the other the “victim”.  It is sort of like being a POW – the mind control that goes on and the fearing for your life and your children’s lives too. Here is a poem that I wrote and turned into a song.  It talks about the fear, and what it feels like to live there.

She looks in the mirror, seems vaguely familiar

like steam on the glass, shame covers her past

the fog slithers down, as evil surrounds

His worst fantasy, her reality

*

he pulls the strings, does unspeakable things

a sadistic entrance, for his acceptance

*

Smothered by control, a tormented soul

trapped in his castle

Her tears rolling mist, proof she  exists

in snow white darkness

*

Clouds of confusion, rolled into illusion

He veils perversion, forcing her coercion

her body he takes, while she flies away

unbelieveable, she’s invisible

*

love is the shadow, that darkens her window

she’s crying for help, to escape her hell

Smothered by control, a tormented soul

trapped in his castle

Her tears rolling mist, proof she  exists

in snow white darkness

*

she hides in the fog, drinks hair of the dog

hates her behavior, craves one to save her

*

Smothered by control, a tormented soul

trapped in his castle

Her tears rolling mist, proof she  exists

in snow white darkness

She looks in the mirror
seems vaguely familiar
like steam on the glass
shame covers her past

the fog slithers down
as evil surrounds
His worst fantasy
her reality

he pulls the strings
does unspeakable things
a sadistic entrance
for his acceptance

smothered by control
a tormented soul
trapped in his castle
her tears rolling mist
proof she exists
in snow white darkness

clouds of confusion
rolled into illusion
He veils perversion
forcing coercion

her body he takes
while she flies away
unbelievable
she’s invisible

love is the shadow
that darkens her window
she’s crying for help
to escape her hell

she hides in the fog
drinks hair of the dog
hates her behavior
craves one to save her

smothered by control
a tormented soul
trapped in his castle
her tears rolling mist
proof she exists
in snow white darkness

This is my response to the Daily Prompt: Never Again

Have you ever gone to a new place or tried a new experience and thought to yourself, “I’m never doing that again!” Tell us about it. Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEVER.
