These things shouldn’t be kept quiet or kept hidden.
When they are, it just keeps going on
And never ends
And the one who is hurting
Keeps hurting
Or takes out their hurt and anger on someone else
And it never ends
I don’t have to say it’s okay that you hurt me
It wasn’t
I have to accept that I was hurt
But it’s hard to accept it
When I wanted to believe so badly that you wouldn’t hurt me,
That you were there for me
That you loved me.
It’s hard to accept when I’m still in
