I was never the type for small talk, superficial conversations.I lay my life out on the table, never bite my tongue.I refuse to hide myself, because you are embarrassed what they might think.I can no longer bear to hide my trauma,To extinguish my fury,To act as if I am okay.I am tired of flinching every […]

In a room full of people but not one truly ever saw me And then you walked in. And you kissed every scar and for a moment I felt healed, Loved, Wanted. And the whole time I thought you saw me, heard me. But one day you were gone and I realized the only thing […]

Imperfections scarred across my bodyFlaws shining like diamond rings on rich delicate fingers.The sparkles that once existed, are now dull specs in my brown eyes.I am unable to pretend that the scars are not deep, that the smiles are real.The sadness consumes me entirely, the emptiness now a part of meLoneliness has become my identityMy […]

The first time he hits you, he cries. Drops to the floor hugging your legs, begging you to forgive him. The tears, the sobs, they almost seem too real, and you’re too naive to know the difference. He’s done this before, to the ones before you. He’ll do it again, after you are long gone. […]
