We live in an unforgivable world.
Dark and cruel.
A world no one can show their true selves.
A world where you’re a Barbie.
A puppet under your master’s watch.

In a dark,
Unattractive house.
My master watches me,
Nearly begging me to do wrong.

And when I do,
A beating is in order.
A kick to the gut,
Fist to the face.

But pain never comes,
Hasn’t for years.
In a world so cruel,
A gift is given.
The gift not to feel.

With this gift,
Not a whimper escapes my lips.
Not a grunt,
Or a gasp.

With this gift,
Master gets maddened.
With this gift,
A consequence is issued.

With each hit,
I grow weaker.
My bones breaking a bit more.
Soon to snap.

With each hit,
My spirit sinks.
Until I have no urge to move.
No will to breathe.

And as I sink into the floor.
A bruised body,
And broken spirit.
I can’t help but think;
Why.

Why issue me such a great gift,
With such a horrid consequence.
