Glaring, daily word prompt

I AM ANGRY. I AM ANGRY AT THE MAN WHO TOOK SO MUCH FROM ME IN MY CHILDHOOD.
BUT…
https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/glaring/
AT HIM WONT MAKE HIM SEE WHAT HE HAS DONE. HE DOESNT CARE. THATS HARD TO SWALLOW. HE IS A THIEF, ROBBING ME OF MY INNOCENCE.

AT HIM, PENETRATING HIS SOUL WITH MY ANGER WONT DO ME ANY GOOD. I WONT HEAL, AND HE WILL STILL WIN.
I WILL NOT CHOOSE TO STAY ANGRY. I WILL NOT CHOOSE

INSTEAD I CHOOSE TO HEAL

Poetry

an innocent kiss
thats all it is
between a father and his daughter
why then do I think of my abuser?
its insane
i feel so ashamed
for equating the two
and my mind wants to say
this abuse from the abuser
didnt ever happen to you
stop making up lies
false tales
such lies
but you remember!
you can never forget
and all of these memories were all sparked
by just one innocent kiss

poetry

silent tears fall
no one sees
i am alone
alone and afraid
the night is long
urges to self harm fill my head
but i breathe instead
counting the breaths
like my therapist showed me and encourages me to do
slowly the hours passed
the urges to cut my skin faded
and were replaced by intense sadness
this is me, this is my truth
