I try to move on but there is no remedy for memories. You haunt my thoughts like Bloody Mary as I look in the mirror and reflect of the mess that I made. I shouldn't have stayed. You got me sent away and thats no metaphore. You left me sore. It wasn't rough love, it wasn't tough love, it was just rough because it made you feel tough.You're not a big man, but you made me a big girl. I used to sit and twirl my hair because I though I had you wrapped around my finger, when really your fingers were wrapped around my neck. Won't someone please check on me. I'm in the bedroom with someone who said they'd love me forever as long as we stayed together, but I'm hurt, I'm bruised, and I'm bleeding, and they get off on my pleading. I'm scared and alone because I was fooled by his soft tone as he whispered sweet obscenities. I'm broken. I'm choking on the insecurities he's force feeding me. My voice is hoarse but I'm screaming. I'll yell until my lungs bleed. I'll cough up the pride he made swallow, but then, as I look down and the blood, broken pride, and the bile, I lose the will to leave with every heave. Until i wipe my mouth on my sleeve, defeated.
