I flew up to the sky

I remember all of those times

My eyes shone with fear

I was like a rabbit

Caught in the headlights

I would listen at night

For the sound of your footsteps approaching

Thump, thump they were so loud

And I always knew

When you entered my room

My nightmare would begin

A part of me died then

I didn’t shout

I didn’t cry

Instead I dissociated

I flew up to the sky
