They Told Me
Anonymous 

They tell me it's a defense mechanism.
They tell me the memories will come back with time.
They tell me I never have to feel that way again.
But would any normal person believe I don't remember my childhood?
I wish I could tell you with certainty about 
the screaming
the crying
the safe haven I found in the back of my closet.
But I can't.
I wish I could tell you with certainty about
my darkness
my hopelessness
the time I spent staring out my window.
But I can't.
I wish I could tell you with certainty about 
my abusive father
my manipulative mother
my broken family.
But I can't.
I know it's in my past somewhere.
Waiting to finally reach me.
I believe that
because they told me.
