the Hope of Survivors

Effects by Rena

I can not near a pastor be
 it makes my stomach sick.
It reminds me all too well
 of his devious tricks.

I can not hear of kind ministry
 it gives me much distress.
It brings to my memory
 the acting he did best.

I can not look at male blue eyes
 it causes the desire to flee,
A flashback I am going to have
 of looking into depravity.

I can not see one who looks like him
 it brings me feelings of fear
It makes me start to panic
 when I think of him too near.

I do not care if I go to sleep
 it offers me no release.
In the nightmares sleep allows
 the fight with him destroys my peace.

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart...Psalms 34:18
