The Ugky Truth

Poem By Nicholas Wayde Turner

I can’t wait until everyone figures you out.
I’ve never had any doubt.
How could you tell me what’s safe and what’s not?
She’s about to connect the dot.
You took away my youth.
I’m scared of you and the ugly truth.
You don’t know what it was like hiding what was wrong day after day.
But now it’s your time to pay.
Help me understand why because I’m about to say good bye.
You, “the man” pushed a little kid into a wall, and you were six foot tall.
Now that he is grown you want to pretend you care.
Is this some sort of dare?
You always had an excuse.
No matter what the abuse.
You were never a man.
The only thing you had going was your fancy little tan.
You thought that you could do what you did just because you put a roof over my head.
But I never felt safe under that roof.
I would have rather moved in with a stranger named Ted.
There was always a wall between you and me.
I don’t think we’ll ever find the key.
I’m starting to figure things out now that I’m older.
And it’s getting much colder.
Its little things that I’m remembering through out the years.
Each one of them gave me the scares.
I walked around peeking around the corners hoping you wouldn’t be in the next room.
Because otherwise there may have been a big boom.
You knew, even when you woke up to the morning dew.
You know what you put me through.
You didn’t even need a crew.
I was asked one time if I felt safe in that house.
But I lied and said “yes” however, I was scared as a little mouse.
Plates and cups flew like missiles in a war.
Our family was pretty much tore.

Drama Drama

Drama here and drama there
Why can’t I get away from here?
You asked me once
But I couldn’t hear

Double Infinity

You and I have had our share of ups and downs
The Loop de loops of worry and doubt never stop when we’re apart
But when our paths cross I see nothing but love in your heart
I lay in bed thinking “how long is his love going to last”

Let Me Go

Let me go, let me go
I need to get away from this mess
You were suppose-to support me
Love me unconditionally

Giving In

They took our life and tore it apart
Before they knew we had it all
They are living their lives
While you and I are still lost in a sea of tears

Super Star

Super star super star
You are now the super star of the family
Before you, it was your momma
And before her it was granny

The Anger Within

You let him destroy what the three of us had.
Everything that was good later went bad.
I lived in constant fear of what he might do.
From six to twenty two I couldn’t break through.
