She was confused about love, confused about truths Confused about lust and what it tells her to do She was bruised by hearts that are joined like two But were split by sharp knives that part through blues Sharp eyes that reveal what the heart holds true Beholder was he, emboldened by cues Signals sent by She so unknowingly cute But the line pulled taut, She was captured by youth Young love, he and She, it was all She knew But that youth was marred by caress turned bruise From hands so soft She was left in ruin But, that was the past She has paid those dues Learned those lessons, made those moves Done with that path, She follows new rules She wanted me to understand and not misconstrue She wanted me to know the truth and not see the ruse And that’s how lightning strikes Sudden like death, awesome like life And that’s how lightning strikes Sudden like death, awesome like life Barnes, Silencio. “the HerStory of She.” from Sentiments of the Cerebral. #rhyming #poetry about #child #abuse #rape and #relationships 2nd #verse #stanzas and #refrain http://bit.ly/herstoryof
