Do You Remember?

Do you remember what you did to me?
Do you remember why you did it?
Do you remember gripping and forcing me down?
Do you remember no longer needing to do either?
Do you remember?

Do you remember hurting me and making me cry?
Do you remember my terror and the words I screamed?
Do you remember how I prayed for protection?
Do you remember my shame and my silence afterward?
Do you remember?

Do you remember saying, “it was for your own good”?
Do you remember in what position I lay?
Do you remember seeing my empathy for others vanish?
Do you remember that I lost my trust in others?
Do you remember?

Do you remember how I feared the dark, my constant nightmares?
Do you remember my perfectionism, and my need to feel safe?
Do you remember my self-doubt and how I belittled myself?
Do you remember how I viewed myself as ‘dirty’, ‘repulsive’, and ‘infectious’?
Do you remember?

Do you remember my suicide attempts?
Do you remember my substance abuse?
Do you remember my defiant behaviour?
Do you remember that you then punished me further?
Do you remember?

I did not remember everything afterwards,
But I remember more now.
Do you care?
Do you remember?
I will never be able to forget.
