My truth. My life.

Broken By You



I wish I could reset myself back to the days before I was broken.

I find my grasping for a breath of air that won’t suffocate me.

I have allowed myself to become dependent on the pain

that you cause me.

I have allowed you to break my spirit and cause me

to lose all dignity with your words.

I believe that it builds you up to watch me crumble.

What can I do to change your actions?

How can I make you see what you are doing to me?

Is it possible that you will one day love me?
