As I awoke, all I could remember
Were my most horrid nightmares of
My former lover who taunted and tormented
Me in my very past.
The memories of his abuse lingered upon my
Tormented mind as I reminisced the pain
And the frightening nature of my two
Recent visions from the last couple nights.
All I remembered was him searching for me
And knowing what he did before,
All I could do was remain in hiding
And remain as quiet as possible.
The moment I had awoken, I was mortified.
I woke up frightened for my life.
Chills ran up my spine
As I was shaken up.
Everywhere I went, I was haunted
By the very ghost who once
Rented my heart out
Only to destroy it and hurt me.
He damaged my well-being.
My peace of mind.
As scared as I am,
I'll never let the demon who once tomented
Me win this hellish battle as I
Know my own worth and value.
He does not own me
Nor can he dictate who I
Fall in love with
As I am my own person with the right to live peacefully.
I'll never hurt my current lover
The way my old flame did.
I'll never let this hellish war
Destroy the love in my heart as it heals with time.
