Tears

The tears rush down
my beat red cheeks.

The hurtful, words you said
make me unable to speak.

The now forming bruises
on my arms and legs.

Are the reasons
for my tears.

These things make me
seem unwanted here.

I aly in bed in
the dark of night.

With these tears I cry
until the morning light.

This piece is about being beatin by a parent or older sibling and listening to the things they say while beating you...It is also about laying in bed all night crying because you feel unwanted because you are beatin.
