I Bruise Easily

I bruise easily
Like a melting pot.
Handle me gently
To ease my heart.

I can feel the pain,
And it hurts in vain
As my heart is melting
With great amain.

There is no cure
To make my heart pure.
I felt so weak
And felt like a freak.

My body is strong,
But my heart felt wrong.
Help me with care
Before it will start to flare.

It stings like a bee,
And a pain I wouldn't admire,
And I can't feel the camaraderie
Because it burns like fire.

Handle me gently
Like a soft doll,
But don't let me fall
Because I bruise easily.


The author's comments:
I started writing poems six years ago, and wrote "I Bruise Easily" somewhere between 8th grade or my freshmen year in high school. I was inspired to write this poem when I was listening to one of my favorite songs with the same title. Whenever I listened to the song, I felt sad or hurt. That time, I wasn't healthy inside and out. I had problems with my self-esteem and some people don't really took me seriously enough because of my body size or my quiet attitude. Among all my poems, "I Bruise Easily" is my top favorite even my English teacher liked it.
