Found and Forgiven

Found and Forgiven

I do not blame him
for all of my pain.
I do not hold him responsible
for my low self esteem or lack thereof.
He sees what I project
and I project in 3D
and hi-fi stereo.
I do not hate him
for the scars inflicted
with raxor sharp tongue
upon my psyche in a flash
of red anger.
They eventually heal.

I have found the courage
that I thought had deserted me
a long time ago,
buried under doubt and pain
and my belief
that I deserved to be
his personal punching bag.
The slow realization, a long time in coming,
that I did not have to take
what he threw upon me,
gave me the strength
to pick myself up off of the floor
for the last time.

I can finally let it go.
The blue and black and purple
of my bruises will slowly fade away in time,
along with the unpleasant memories.
The tiny drops of crimson dripping to the floor
I no longer smear away,
like my shattered dreams.
I can put them back together.
My broken bones have healed
but still hurt, like my heart.

I know now that it wasn''t my fault
and I hold on to that thought,
I am stronger for it.
I believe....
I will never again
cower in a corner, afraid.

I have found myself
and I can forgive him.

~Thou shalt have an everlasting Monday and stand in the moon~
