Your only 24

Your only 24 
but your hanging on a tread
Living in a purgatory 
with a man mistake you wed
Your swimming in a whirl pool 
It’s not easy to escape
The nightmare that you live with
Is the nightmare known as rape
Your only 24 
Well almost twenty five
But already you’ve forgotten 
What’s keeping you alive
You’re bright eyes have darkened
You feel helpless you feel tense
For his fingers crawl Like insects
Across  your innocence
Your eyes have lost their sparkle
Their Jewelled light gone out
And in their place is fear 
And the muffled silent shout
You cry when he’s gone away
And in the mirror you stare
And you don’t recognise yourself 
When your lost and need some care
For first he took your innocence
Then smothered you in pseudo care
Convinced you about his love for you
that wasn’t ever there
Then he took all your energy
Made you feel so small
 danced around your problems
Not answering when you call
But your only 24 
He can’t keep you caged for ever
A better life awaits you
When this false love you severe 
grasp the nettle in your life
Hold firm you won’t get stung
 make a break for freedoms sake
Till a new life you’ve begun
Change is never easy
challenges they’ll be more
But the view is so much nicer
When you open freedoms door

Your only 24
