aimed at their weak spots.

And she sees them flinch internally

And it's good

She wanted it that way

Let them beat her with their fists

And kick at her like a bloody carcass

Let her bleed and bruise and cry out

But don't let them get a word in first

Don't let them insult and hate you with their words

Speak fast and speak first and make it sting

Because her body is unfeeling if it wants to be

But her mind is easily bruised.
