Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


They walk past,
my books fall,
you snicker.
I bite my tongue,
to hold back the words unspoken.
It hurts.

I hear the remarks tossed around me,
"So dumb."
"Ever heard of a tan?'
"It's called hair spray, sweetie."
I bite my tongue some more
This time,
I feel a cut open up,
on my heart.

I feel their eyes,
watching,
ridiculing,
glaring.
I feel them bore into me,
and watch them whisper to one another.
I bite my tongue again,
so hard,
I taste blood.

Eventually, I'm going to bite it off,
if I'm not careful.
