I ran and ran and ran
trying to outrun my secret shame.
I drank and drank and drank
trying to drown my secret pain.
I swallowed and swallowed and swallowed
trying to numb my secret past.
But the secret childhood sexual abuse
would not be outran,
would be drowned,
would not be numbed.
I vomit you out.
I stop running.
I stop drowning.
I stop numbing.
I stop alcohol and drugs.
I start talking.
I start healing.
