She Can Only Save Herself

A Poem By soundslikeajourney // 4/17/2008


she hollars as she slams the bathroom door,

searching for some comfort

she opens the medicine cabinet door.

But let me take you back

to the day that this all started

that dreaded phone call from the school

which left her father broken-hearted.

He was relaxing at the house

when awoken from a dream

on the other line the voice whispered

and his whole world ripped at the seam.

A tear slowly rolled down his cheek

and hit the living room floor

thoughts racing through his mind ,yes,

you could only imagine his horror.

A teacher had discovered

while she was grading papers in class

"Oh Honey, where did that come from ?"

"I just cut myself on some broken glass."

But the truth behind the lies,

revealed a deeper meaning

someone was concerned for her

but NOTHING could stop the bleeding.

The snickering faces of the girls

that teased her everyday,

she HATED that boy that took advantage

of her body,the first time she felt true love

and gave herself away.

The uncontrollable sobbing

that ravaged her the day

her dad found out her dirty secret,

but she took it,


We sat outside and talked awhile

as she wished her life away,

there will always be a vivid memory

when I told her to stop that day.

Sad... I was left confused

Sad... I was left confused though and I had to read it again! I understand most of it but it's almost like you left out a word or a sentence and it needed deeper meaning! You tried to make it mysterious in the beginning when really that made it fall out of place and left other parts mysterious! YOu did do a good job, though! ;)
