To my old neighbours

Trigger Warning – Sensitive Subject Matter

I know you were afraid to get involved,

I know you heard everything he did to me,

and I know you just tried to forget about it.

I don’t blame you for not intervening,

you knew there was no reasoning with him,

and he’d hurt me more if you did.

I don’t blame you for not trying to talk to me about it,

it’s a sensitive issue to bring up,

and the one neighbour who did couldn’t make me leave.

I don’t blame you for sitting back while it happened,

it’s still spoken about in hushed terms now,

and everyone is scared to get involved.

I blame him,

I only blame him,

and I will only ever blame him.

There was nothing we could do,

I never saw sense while I was in it,

and we couldn’t take him on if I did.
