My Poetry

My revenge visualizations are a grouping of poems we write that address revenge that our system feels to our child sexual abusers. They are only poems, nothing more, but some of them are more descriptive than others, as such, I wanted to include a warning about the poems, they may be difficult or unsettling to read or process. Please use caution when reading.

Revenge Visualization #7

he wakes

from dreaming

though it is

his own screams

that wake him

sweat drenched

and shaking

he shuffles to

the bathroom

attempting to

shake off the dream

of being trampled by

mother elephants

in their rage

of him coming

too close to their

babies

returning to the

bedroom

he moves to

stand by the window

outside

below

I stand

staring up

at the moon

face lit,

smiling.
