But Now I Remember

Back

by Damon

The way he ate made me feel sick,
his face, his clothes, especially his dick,
I hadn’t forgot, I chose not to tell,
but now I remember, even his smell,

the way he would talk, meant nothing to me,
I was 11 and him 53,
he knew it was wrong and now so do I,
you shouldn’t have done it and neither should I,

but I didn’t know I was only a lad,
you were the adult, you knew what you had,
your payment was poxy, there isn’t a price,
on how you have truly affected my life

my behaviour got dangerous didn’t care if I died,
but now I am stronger, there’s one in your eye
don’t know where you are, don’t know if I care,
but now I remember, and now I will share,

I think I’ll go back, go back to the park,
and take back my power you stole in the dark,
I’ll no longer be silent, I’ll no longer stay schtum,
I know what you are you know… you are scum!

the way he ate made me feel sick,
his face, his clothes, especially his dick
I hadn’t forgot, I chose not to tell
but now I remember, and now I DO tell!
