The way it was
Secrets kept tears I’ve wept
For all those horrid times
The battles I have fought within
The wars I’ve fought against him
Tear upon year tear after tear
Day after day and on into the night
The sound he made filled me with fright
His smell his touch the repulsive sight
I hold my secrets to my chest
I am told that that is best
My family are here about
It’s years gone by when they hear my shout
Is that our jenny calling us?
Why is she making such a fuss?
They don’t believe a word I say
When I tell what happened yesterday
The secrets reviled the stories read
The words are written what was said
Who did what and where and when?
Not once or twice but again and again and again
