you;
speak loudly,
yelling.
what did i do now?

you;
pull back your fist,
screaming.
i tense for the blow.

you;
hit me hard,
angry.
but it doesnt hurt me anymore.

you;
pull back now,
enraged.
and i stay standing still.

you;
have hurt me again.
how could a mother do this to her child?
all i want is to be your friend.

I like your style but the content of it made me want to cry. I understand what it's about but I hope it didn't actually happen to you. It's kinda sad.. =,(

no, it didnt happen to me. a lot of my poems are based on the hurt and pain i have inside of me and i just let it out...most of my poems arent true, just the concept of the pain is. :) thank you!
