After Effects

By Anonymous

Has you ever cried yourself to sleep
Jumped when the phone rang
Lock and relocked the door
Barricaded the door
Locked your bedroom door
Barricaded your bedroom door
Slept with a knife between the mattresses
Slept with a baseball bat in bed

It gets easier over time
It never fully goes away
It gets easier over time

You begin to block it out
You begin to replace it with new memories
You begin to live again

Sometimes it comes back
Fear is an old friend
It never really goes away
It sneaks up on you
It fools you at times

One day I hope
One day I pray
One day it will be forgotten
