The Anguish Within Me

By , Fort Lee, NJ
Pain is all I feel,
Etched into my heart along with a feeling of emptiness
My mind is hallow as my world goes blank with each strike
Shutting my eyes in fear of the incoming impact,
Clenching my teeth as our skins collide.

Each blow takes my breath away,
Leaving me gasping for air, helplessly, hopelessly.
I feel the warm liquid trickle down my skin
And my vision begins to blur with water.

The abuse received leaving wounds that will someday decease,
Yet imprinting scars into my heart.
Mockery and taunting spat into my face,
Adding onto the pile of words that can never be erased,
A knife piercing into my soul.
Although the wounds may heal
Forever lasting pain is graved into my memories.

The desire to speak causing my heart to pound against my chest,
Ready to unleash the monster inside of me.
Yet the fear, the anxiety that holds me back
Causes me to shrivel and flinch at each move made.
My heart beating faster and harder
Tempting me to fight back;
Yet still, I am unable to utter a sound.

I painfully accept my treatment
With burning flames of abhorrence scorching my heart
Forever leaving the scars carved into my soul.
