Verbal Abuse
Author: Charmaine


Your words they sting,
I feel my heart bleeding.
You words they cut,
I feel scars on my skin.

Every word you say,
Every mean thing you do,
They stab into my heart,
And leave me with so much hurt.

I swallow the pain,
And endure the tears.
Never have I complained,
I simply kept it all in my heart.

Day by day,
As the time passes by,
And so I continue to endure,
This verbal abuse you inflict on me.

------- Author's Notes -------

The times you put me down and mock at me, they leave unremovable scars on me. I'm almost reaching the breaking point, this abuse you inflict is too much to bear.

Lady C! Charmaine! I wish I was as tough as a male, so that I wouldn't cry as often or get too emotional during times like this. Believe me, I understand what you're saying. Yo comphrende! (Me and my terrible spanish!)
As always girlie girl, juicy fruit poem! It's as sweet as the chewing gum!
