I Am

I am a stray.
I stand outside naked, bare, cold.
My heart is as hard as a brick.
I do not care about you; I am no longer a part of you.
I stare into your lifeless eyes.
They have stolen my soul.
My body numb, by your words of poison.
Is there anything else you need to say?
You throw me away like an old rag.
I lie helpless.
I can barely stand, my body paralyzed.
I whimper for affection like a dog.
Water leaks from my eyes, I want it to end.
My inside has decayed from your injection of hate.
I cringe when I think of all the things you have said to me.
The lights are out and the streets are silent.
I am alone in a world full of billions.
I wish to be heard but I cannot scream, my mouth tight shut.
No one can see me, I am nothing.
