Shame on Me

Her words continue to hurt me
They attack while I wait silently
I long for tranquil days patiently
She doesn’t love me unconditionally

Finding faults in most everything I do
She chips away at what I thought I once knew
Bringing me down with her negativity and belief
Leaving me unsure and full of grief

I want to be strong and live my own life
Deflect the voice that cuts like a knife
Don’t let her in, don’t let her win
Be true to myself and begin again

Shame on me for letting it always go this far
Please, God, help me relinquish these scars
