Bitter sweet memories

Look what all you've done to me


You locked me up inside my dreams


Made me turn from the world so free


Hid me away and made me bleed


Never left me alone to seethe


Beaten 'till I couldn't breathe


Bitter sweet memories…




Bitter sweet memories


Look me in the eyes


Watch me as I cry


Maybe then you'll get the why


Made my world float so high


Told me where I should hide


And caged me in your rhyme


Bitter sweet memories…




Bitter sweet memories


Locked away to be only used


For someone else's deep abuse


Never make the collar seem loose


A girl suffered and brought to use


Never to understand the truth


Feeling nothing more then abused


Bitter sweet memories…




Bitter sweet memories


Locked me up inside my dreams


Hidden away with secret schemes


Never to be set free


Beat me up and made me bleed


A stunning love that you gave me


Heard only by tears and screams


Bitter Sweet Memories


The author's comments:
This poem was based off of the same idea as Dean Koontz's The Door to December novel. Dean Koontz has always been a big inspiration to me, and it would be an honor to meet him, or even just speak with him. I hope that if he reads this, he's proud.
