Mess me up

And throw me down

Cover my mouth

So I can't make a sound

 

Your hands were so rough

I forced myself to be tough

The smell of you

Haunts me too

 

Why'd you have to do that?

I was only nine years old!

Tears on cheeks

And losing streaks

 

Clothes in a backpack

Self-esteem, that's what I lack

I gotta get out of here

Away from what I fear

 

Mess me up

And throw me down

Cover my mouth

So I can't make a sound

This piece is about me and my experiences. I've been through a lot, and I don't know, writing is just how I express it. I don't expect many people to see this one, but I'll give it a shot.
