Things She Drowned

She drowned them

Repressed memories

Kept down inside

A shout, a hit, a yelp in shock

The tears and the pain

Screams cut silent air

Cut deep into rock.

 

Outside, the scars heal

But they bury down inside

 Inside her.

 

The tortured carry the weight

Until the weight is far too

Great

For one to carry

On tired backs.

 

For with the

 Mementos and ghosts she drowned

She finally drowned a girl

Born on the wrong side of life

Born into a cruel world.
