Afraid
Fearful
Terrified
Anxious
Parnoid
Scared
Nervous

My heart is pounding
My bones are shaking
My eyes are twitching
My voice is breaking

You shout
You scream
I pout
You beam

You love seeing
The results of the pain
That YOU cause ME

Physical pain
Emotional pain
Psychological pain
Your malice has no restraint

Sad
Tearful
Depressed
Woeful
Pitiful
Sorrowful
Blue

My heart is breaking
My eyes are leaking
My bones are aching
I can't stop weeping

You become angry with my sadness
Despite your delight at my pain
You mock my protests
And yell as my eyes rain
You kick me when I am down
And tell me your cruelty is in my head
You call me stupid and crazy
You make me think I'd be better off dead

Cruel
Mean-spirited
Nasty
Vindictive
Ghastly
Unkind
Depraved

You are angry with the world
You take it out on me
I have never done harm to you
You hurt me unbashedly

Why are you so angry
At a world that has served you well?
Why are you so angry
That you make me go through hell?
Is it because past lovers did you wrong?
Is it because your family detests you?

Well, I am not a lover scorned
Nor am I your estranged family
I have never done you wrong
And I did nothing to deserve this

I have done nothing
But honour you
Obey you
Serve you
Submit to you
Amuse you
Apologise to you
For things I didn't even do

While you have done everything
To destroy me
Humiliate me
Neglect me
Belittle me
Harm me
And accuse me
Of things I could never be

Afraid
Fearful
Terrified
Anxious
Parnoid
Scared
Nervous

Sad
Tearful
Depressed
Woeful
Pitiful
Sorrowful
Blue

I feel all of these thing because of you
Because of you
