Only I Am Me
Your spiky words
capture my heart
and sever its delicate strings with
the sharp scissor blades of your tongue.
Are they even just?
How am I supposed to know
when I feel like they have become me
and are floating in my sea of thoughts second after second?
Not a day drags on when my ashamed heart
is not punctured by your awful diction.
These words flow in my body like blood in my veins.
They never find a way out, but only hit my nerves
time after time, place after place,
and I feel exhausted, worn out, tired every minute of every day.
I am done trying to defeat the deadly beast,
for it has become me and changed my body and being,
making me feel like I am nothing, but just trash
withering by the populous road.
Maybe I am fat, ugly, pimply, stupid, awkward, crazy, filthy and unworthy.
Maybe it is over.
Maybe my time on earth is finished.
I have to stand courageous for the people that love me.
My parents, family, pets, and few friends,
I know that they would hate to see me go
because they love me, and tell me so.
I have barely experienced life!
I have never taken my driver's test,
I have never had a spouse,
and I have never had children
or taken a job doing what pleases me.
My time on earth is now,
and I should be living my own life everyday,
standing up for myself.
I will defeat the beast in all my power
for it is not me.
Only I am me.
