    I'm sitting in my window
    Watching you play ball
    Sitting and reminscing on old times
    When we thought we had it all.

    It was only two summers ago
    In fact it's two years on today
    A clear, hot summers night
    When I gave my most precious treasure away.

    Oh yeah, I remember that summer clearly
    I was so in love with you
    I remember when I told you about my pregnancy
    Quickly our childhood was through.

    I can just think on it now
    I was such a scared little girl
    I was only 16 years old
    Not ready to bring a life to this world.

    You talked my head off
    About abortion, but not marriage
    I was so very naive
    I was thinking rings and a baby carriage

    So I scraped out my child
    Thinking that it was to please
    But you never said I loved you again
    or got on your knees

    Yes, that summer messed me up
    Ruined my concept of love
    Im 18 years old now
    Still I don't recieve your love.

    I'm looking out into the glass
    Looking at the one who killed my spirit
    He's outside laughing and Im still crying
    And he acts like he doesn't hear it

    I'm sitting in my window
    Feeling the feelings of the past
    He took my virginity, I killed my baby
    and he broke my heart last.

    Life will one day serve him a pill too bitter to swallow. In the meantime, keep healing, and loving all that is you. This was an emotive piece, and so well written.

    Oh God...sister
    this was such a strong piece...
    from a brave poet...
    you left my soul in a river of tears...
    this piece was so powerful...
    you just reached in and
    crushed my heart into a fine
    powder and it blew away
    with each new wind of word I read...
    Oh...I can barely speak
    there is so much I want to say
    but can't for the pain...

    Just know that this was felt... :grouphug:
