Poem-beginnings

I lie in the darkness
Cowering in fear
The footsteps grow louder
Thud, thud, thud
I am barely breatheing
Trying to pretend I am asleep
Maybe then, he’ll leave me alone
But no
He enters my bedroom
The smell of sweat is horrendous
He comes closer
And closer still
Until he towers over me
I flinch but try not to
He tears the covers back
Grabs me and begins his sick game
I lie there terrified
Wondering if I might die this time
Praying I will
I float away
Someone else takes my place
Someone stronger than I am at that moment
Someone new is formed, an alter personality
This is the beginning of it
Of how we as a did system were created
