I Still Love Her
23 February, 1997
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)
"YOU ARE BAD"
but I am good
but I am seen
"YOU WANT TO BE JUST ONE OF THE GUYS?"
but they are my best friends
"IT'S STUPID, YOU CAN'T BE A ROCK STAR"
but I'm good
"WE"LL PAY FOR YOU TO GO TO COLLEGE"
but I take courses you want me to take
"i'm lonely, i want to come home"
"HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED"
"i've lost 60 pounds, i'm hungry"
WE"RE BUYING A NEW CAR
i wrote you a long heart filled letter
"IT'S SO FULL OF LIES, I CAN'T EVEN READ IT"
i send you cards at birthdays
i'm broke (but i sent you gifts this Christmas)
YOU SENT ME MY BABY BOOK & RETURN MY GIFTS
HEY MOM! I'M STILL ALIVE
I STILL LOVE YOU
i love you
------- Author's Notes -------
I am alive. I am worth it. I am good. I can sing. I can write. She's never noticed.

I can not relate because i have a mom that cares but i feel sad because i am excited to have my mom and cant amagine not having her there.

I love your writing about this yep mental abuse lasts longer than physical abuse. physical wounds heal, mental wounds don't, you learn to only turn to yourself for uplifting thoughts.
