Her


Her eyes stare deep into mine,
 
searching my soul but i have no disguise.
 
Looking for that word that phrase that will tear me down most.
 
But all she needs to do is say one word,
 
one negative word and that will send me crashing,
 
crashing like a wave on the beach
 
over and over the same thing.
 
Those disapproving glances,
 
the talk behind me,
 
one word after another
 
but i always come back.
 
See because i can't leave no matter how her words, like knives, stab me in the back.
 
Does she not see my pain? or does it give her a kind of power over me,
 
the helpless girl looking up at her as her eyes search me in and out.
 
How much can i take before i'm spinning out of control
 
into a bottomless hole that i can't come out of.
 
That no one can save me from.
 
She looks at me
 
up and down
 
with those beautifully evil brown eyes
 
and with that sleek smile she says it,
 
whore,
 
my drop through this deep black hole takes me faster
 
farther.
 
Like alice in wonderland
 
hitting everything along the way
 
until i stop.
 
in my own little world
 
i'm safe,
 
safe from her words,
 
her looks,
 
her eyes.
 
In wonderland i will stay
 
for the pain is no longer there.
 
This confusing world unknown to me
 
where i will be invisable
 
until someone cares to come find me.

    Powerful write this! It's amazing how words can have an adverse effect on us. The need to hide from hurtful words is understandable. Nicely done!
