Daily Dispatch 29: I escaped.


I danced in crystal rain,
with my legs and arms,
covered in bruises.

Now I finally broke your chain,
and liberated myself,
from your domain.

I took my chance and jumped,
and turned my back on you,
deep into the night.

It was time for me to run,
I got up off the ground,
and ran towards the sun.

No matter how much you tried,
to break me and all my bones,
my spirit still survived.

I escaped your prison cell,
and your controlling eyes,
I left it all behind.

And at my final glance at hell,
I saw you dressed in black,
mourning over nothing than a lie.

I never thought I’d see you cry,
and to know that you’re in pain,
is my soothing lullaby.

You will never see my face again,
or know I’m still alive,
escaped and undercover I remain.

Until the day I die.
I will wear a different name,
and live a happy life.

This poem is part of the project Daily Dispatch.

About this poem:

This poem is for everyone, who has survived and has overcome the burdening chains of an abusive relationship. This poem is especially for my strong and brave mother. I wouldn’t have had the chance to become who I am today, if it weren’t for her heroism.

I can not say, why I had to write this today. These thoughts just started coming out of the blue today. One day I am going to eventually write a book, that tells her story. I do believe, it is a story worth telling. It can’t be left untold.

For today, this is all I’m going to write.

See you soon,

  1. That you view you mother as a heroine is testament to your wisdom and insight. What a beautiful poem
