It’s Time

It’s Time

written by: Cristina Munoz



i’m over denying
done with running
behaving like nothing
horrible happened
pretending i’m fine
insisting on believing
if i just keep on fighting
those flashbacks will fade
only this hasn’t worked yet
unraveling in ways
making me sick

it’s time to confront
a terrible truth
he didn’t disappear
after i turned fifteen
as the demon hellbent
on destroying me
was him all along

it’s time to face
his lasting impact
starting by letting go
of my comforting rage
masking the shame
before it’s too late
