To me your voice is a monster
Waiting to come out.
You put me down,
Make me feel hated.
I struggle to get you to understand
But you don’t,
You don’t care.
You pretend that you aren’t hurting me
My feelings are a wall to you
Made of one-way glass,
Invisible to your eyes.
Everyday I am reminded of what you have put me through.
I try to smile and laugh it off,
But you hurt me,
And there’s no way you can fix it now.
Sometimes I don’t want to see you,
From fear you’ll break me.
When I am vulnerable
Thinking of you is a sacrifice to my dignity.
You are a weight, dragging me down.
But I can get up and prove my strength.
I live my life like everyone should,
Walking away from the bad
Searching for the good.
