Sleepy Head

Err a little poem for you

Sleepy Head

The way we sleep is a peculiar thing
Some sleep deep
Some sleep thin
My mother slept deep
She slept like the dead
She closed her eyes
She turned her head
My father slept thin
He was haunted at night
He opened his eyes
He looked for some head

I slept like a child
However they sleep
Until I woke up
To My father on me
I didnít understand
But I felt sudden dread
I started to scream
I pounded my head

So with his hand
He covered my mouth
To silence his guilt
And cover my shouts
His hand on my mouth
I bit down hard
His blood in my mouth
My blood on the bed
My Mother sleeps deep
Her eyes shut she turns away her head

I pray for a deep sleep
Like my motherís
A deep sleep
That protects me
From my fatherís
Thin sleep
My only hope
Is to sleep
To sleep with the dead
To kill his demons
That live in my head

I am glad to see that I am not the only female who is willing to admit her father molested her. I know it happened more than just Moshu and I. I know that is probably the most difficult thing to admit, that your own father could do such a thing to his daughter. But my mother wasn't sleeping. She was there watching it happen. She was part of it knowingly. I am so sorry for your pain. I understand it deeply. Be good to yourself.

Did you write this? Is this about you or just a general experience in the family?

Yes! I did write this and yes it is about me and my father---however, since he was not the only male in the family abusing me my feelings when writing this were Our Fathers Rape us while Our Mothers pretend not to see they look away. So this is just a big shout out to our "loving" parents gee thanks for the love. (reply to this comment
