Every night I’m haunted,
Haunted by the unbearable nightmares,
Nightmares about the sleepless nights I spent under the bed
About the countless nights I’m made to be a punching bag
Horrors of the melancholic screams that always fall on deaf ears
My mind is tormented,
My glass heart shattered
I am scared!
Scared to even sleep
Scared to show my face
Because of the scars that i have
Scars that I’ll have to live with until I see my grave
Scars that will remind me of what I’ve been through
Though he may have scarred me
The venom that came from his mouth left me discomfit
It murdered my soul.
The shattered pieces still break even more
I’m nothing but broken
My heart bleeds each day, cut by the glass
I break down all the time,
I can’t hold it in
I’ve been objectified,
I feel less human, unworthy
The words keep ringing in my head
“You are nothing!”
Maybe that’s what i am
Or maybe it was meant to be
I’m unable to face people
I am a disgrace on the face of the earth.
He spat on my face!
Screamed at me!
Even the gods of the soil have forsaken me
I have no tears left to cry
Because streams have dried up
Leaving evidence of their existence on my face
Its just silent sniffs and unheard screams
