Stranger

By , Highland Hieghts, OH
Broken
Shards of glass
Needles piercing my skin
Your words sliced open my flesh
Tearing open gaping holes in my heart
Why?
The minute you went to speak
I knew
I would never be the same
Never me again
In one sentence you changed my entire universe
The tears didn’t come
I only told you
It’s time for goodbye
Why?
Sitting in this chair
A room full of people
Innocent
Do they know?
Can they feel it?
The wrongness of my presence must
Surely
Bother them
Foreign
Strange
Awkward
Silent
INVISIBLE
All because of those three words
I hurt
But no one will ever see
I am no longer me
An empty shell
A hollow soul
I am
Rachael
No more
They say it’s for the best
You were
NEVER
A good friend
But what I say
Is not what I hide
Deep
Deep
Inside
Here
In my shallow lonely chest
I hide a secret
In place of a heart that never beats
The words you spoke
That cut me like a knife
Come to me
Late
Late
At night
They haunt my dreams
They kill my hopes
Never again shall I know
Who I am
Who is me?
All I know is I hate you
No, I hate
ME
