The Game


She might have never left a mark on me,
But over again did she beat my brain.
Her words still bruise my mind: dumb, worthless, fat,
She loved to abuse and break me like that.
And in the end, she thinks she won the game.

This Poems Story

This poem was inspired by an abusive struggle. It was written at age sixteen, born from a cup of green tea and a Friday night. A huge thank you goes to my friends in the LTHS Creative Writing room. Words can break you...but always remember that words can heal you, too.
