The Darkness Of Shadows

The darkness of the shadows
Haunt
Fallow
scared of my own decisions
I cried out
but did you listen?
no
you stood there
starring
watching
observing every move
I have no one but myself
"I can do it"
I try and tell myself
but the cuts tell me different
what am I to do with all these dreams of
death
and tormenting
am I to lock it up and hide my feeling
that seems to be way
but why can't I be saved again
am I
unsaveable
unfixable
broken with every care in my heart
do I have a heart anymore
can I show love anymore
can I smile without hiding how I really feel
it goes on and on and I have nothing
no one

This is how I've felt after CPS kept my children without due process. Pretending I was fine so sadness wasn't called depression, my mourning wasn't called unstable, my frustration wasn't called an anger issues. Having to go on while worried about my kids. Feeling completely alone when accused of things I hadn't done. Terrified to tell our circumstance or ask for help for fear no one would believe us. And alone without everyone I loved. And no one cared because the truth wasn't easy for anyone to face. Threatened with jail. Accused of lies, I couldn't tell the truth without visits taken. My children were lied to, my freedom threatened, our lives turned chaotic. And I have fought for our family ALL ALONE.
