as I sit
and think
memories threaten to erupt
engulfing me
fear grips me
as I try to distract
I was little
9 maybe 10 at most
we’d be forced to go to meetings
where satan was glorified
evil things were done
involving blood, drowning, hanging, upside down crosses
normal things were twisted
so they became evil
my stomach churns every time I think of what was done
abuses of the worst kind, inflicted on little children
innocence taken and destroyed
all in the name of satan
I sit and I cry
and I try to forget
but I cant forget
i’ll never forget
