Hit Me

I wish he would hit me.
I pray, that someday,
He'll leave me with scars,
Be the cause of my bleeding,
Of my painful cries.
I wish he would smack me,
Across the face,
Leave a bruise,
A swollen jaw.
I wish he would make me scream out in pain,
Beg for mercy.
I wish he would just hit me.

Because it would hurt less
Than his words.

i like this as well. but i think you could elaborate more on the ending. like say or word the last line differently so that is doesnt sound as cliche. besides that i really like this poem!
