Philena: So Tired

"Leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone..." -Otep, Jonestown Tea. Philena's POV

"Come here, 'Lena. Come over to your stepfather." 

He beckons to me and I walk over, thinking maybe, just maybe, that day at the Zoo was a one-time thing. Maybe... maybe he wouldn't hurt me any more. Maybe he'd be a new Dad- not so much a replacement for Daddy, but a new one. Someone to keep his spot warm.

"That's a good little girl. Come on." 

He removes my pants and holds me down and I find out that it wasn't a one-time thing, and I cry, and I cry and cry and cry until Garrett comes into the room, asking if it's alright if he holds me. I nod. The dream was so real- it was such an old memory, I didn't think it could show its face. I guess I was wrong.

"Why? Why does he have to do this? We put him away! We put him away for life! Why does he have to haunt me still? It's been two years... oh my god, I'm so tired of seeing him in my dreams... Garrett, I'm so tired of it all."

I'm so tired.
