You try to hurt me with your vicious words,
Sayings that are not repeated.
You push me up against the wall,
Yet I am not defeated.
I tell no one of the abuse;
My thoughts are now in silence.
I try my hardest to defend myself;
Yet I can’t escape the violence.
No matter how hard I try to impress you;
My efforts are all in vain.
No matter how fast I run-
I can’t escape the pain.
You blame everyone else for your torment;
Then you can’t look in the mirror.
I tried to point it out to you-
But I can’t be any clearer.
My vision is all cloudy now-
From tears threatening to fall;
Why we were even fighting-
I can’t seem to recall.
The cycle of hate continues-
As evil need not rest.
I try to help as well as I can;
But you think that you know best.
