I hide in myself

     Do you notice or even care

Your words spill from a razored tongue


You call me stupid

   I apologize for being me

      You never apologize

          You don’t have to

Insults are my constant companion

I change  

Now everything about me feels fake

    I slip on my mask

Still…you jab at me with your barbed words

You’re too fat

   I starve myself

You’re too skinny why can’t you dress like they do

    My body is dying

You should look like them

   I try


She’s a natural beauty…you tell all your friends

   Why can’t you wear makeup like the rest…is my slap in the face

I hate you…is what I want to say

   Instead…I try

Your makeup is fake…you look old

     I loathe you

Your eyes have wrinkles…take better care of yourself

you embarrass me

My mind screams that you are my wrinkles…my plague

     My self-worth is gone

        Inside I hide

My mind is numb to your verbal mind rape,

    Death is coming

        My triumphant escape

      1. Sorry for the confusion. When any person is abused physically, emotionally, sexually or in anyway by another; it is not right. There are no conditions or situation that justify this behavior.

        1. I thought that was your meaning. But, I didn’t want to jump in without knowing. I completely agree with you and thank you for your support and for sharing your thoughts. I have seen and experienced many forms of abuse throughout my life and I hope my words will help others realize that they are not alone and they do not have to stay and be hurt. Have a fabulous day a stay safe.

          1. Thank you. In one of my former lives I was a psychotherapist. I experienced with many patients their PTSD. Most were anxious and feared to trust. I understood them because I also had this condition. Depending on the severity, it could take a lifetime to work through.
