No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ~Eleanor Roosevelt


I hate
his words-
an empty "I love you",
the way he can
degrade me until I cry.

I hate
the way he instilled
a burning anger--hatred--
inside of me.

I hate
how I'm helpless to
do anything but
clench my jaw.

I hate
all the things
I've wanted to say,
but never could.

I hate
how no amount
of smiles can hide
the sorrow in my eyes.

I hate
how my mascara creates
black rivers that make
my tears more prominent.

I hate
the look of empathy
in my sister's eyes
and pity in strangers'.

I HATE
how I now lay curled
on my bedroom floor-
sobbing.

"I walked away,
not because I wanted to leave,
but because I wanted to see if you would try to catch me.
And when you didn't,
I had the strongest urge to turn around and come back...again.
But I didn't.
I just kept on walking."

i really really like this, ur really good :)
