How He Hurts Me

He never touched me
Not physically
But he hurt me

He joked about my looks
He teased about my weight
He made me feel bad for things he didn't understand

I tried to laugh it off
I tried to defend myself
I tried to tell him when it hurt
I tried to explain why it hurt

He never understood why it hurt
He'd try to make another joke out of it
He'd blame it on me for not having a sense of humor
He'd tell me I was being too serious

We fought when he didn't agree
He wouldn't give anything
He was always right
If I disagreed, he'd belittle me
If I ever cried, he'd blame me for being too sensitive

There is no child that will be good enough for him
