Hurt like me


Hurt like me
I’ve been through a lot in my short 26 years years of living
All the things a person never wants for their children
I’ve been raped and I’ve been used
I’ve been beaten by the man that I Loved until I was black and blue
In fact, I’ve had every type of heart break a little girl dreads
I have to sleep alone because my demons take up the other side of the bed
I cry myself to sleep every single night
I know what it’s like to hate yourself
To look at your reflection and mistake yourself
for another person
that little voice in your head keeps saying you’re worthless
don’t wanna wake up cause all you feel is hurt and despair
scrolling thru your contacts and can’t find a single person who cares..
I been there
I know the pain
I can recognize it when i see it it someone else’s face
and I can tell you hurt like me
I can’t ignore what the others refuse to see...
...That hit your soul, didn’t it?
Right now you can’t breathe
I can see the sleepless nights
Holding onto everything that’s not right
I can tell you’ve lost your soul
and whether or not you want it back, you still don’t know
I see that yours eyes don’t sparkle
You’ve got too many regrets, carrying around a whole heart full
and because I know you hurt like me
I can sense the hope you seek
I can tell you want better
I promise you won’t have to cry forever
You just have to decide that enough is enough
Gotta get to the point where who you’ve become is just too much
to deal with
Walking around depressed and can’t seem to shake the feeling
This life seemed so appealing when you signed the dotted line
It was easy to get in, getting out is going to take some time
You have to change everything about your life
You’re gonna lose some friends, and miss them many nights
But you MUST do something
You’re the only one who can save your life
You’re the only one who knows what it’s really like
You spent those nights
You’re the one that cried
You mourned the loss when the old you died
You tried.. and failed
So now you don’t want to try anymore
Afraid to do the work, cause you don’t wanna cry anymore
Deep down you’re petrified of not waking up with tears in your eyes
You’re not ready to be great, you still love this life
My friend, I know you hurt like me
I can see it as clear as can be
I can feel the pain you carry
I’ve seen your nightmares, I know they’re scary
But I can’t sit here and lie to you
You can’t be whole and do what you’re tryna do
At some point peace will be the only option
You’re self destructing with all of us watching
And I know what it’s like, thats why I’ll run in the fire to save you
But it will all be for nothing if you keep going back to whats tryna break you
and I can tell you hurt like me
I can’t ignore what the others refuse to see...
...That hit your soul, didn’t it?
Right now you can’t breathe
I can see the sleepless nights
Holding onto everything that’s not right
I can tell you’ve lost your soul
and whether or not you want it back, you still don’t know
