Eyes wide open but a glimmer of hope

Eyes wide open but a glimmer of hope
As I walk out in plain sight,
Will I be safe in broad daylight….
As I feel that Icey Stare,
Does anybody really care….
Walking along I tremble with fear,
At the thought is he here or extremely near….
I stop and I pause,
Feeling I’m just short of his claws….
As I turn around to go back home,
I know I’m never truly ever alone….
As I rush to close the door,
Anxiety and panic attacks, I crash to the floor….
The realisation I’m not safe behind doors….
That constant unwanted attention,
Leaves me feeling in my own home I’m in detention….
At last a sign of relief brings me safer days,
When I picked up the phone and called Changing Pathways….
