A little something of Nothing

Pain tears one in two.

Pain is the tear stains on my face.

Pain in my eyes is the dagger in your heart.

Pain is eating me alive, consuming my heart and soul.

Pain is waking alone again, as always.

Pain is no one to dry my tears or care that they fall at all.

Pain is the hollow feeling inside where I used to reside.

Pain.

I’m sorry

I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough for you.
Before you roll your eyes and sigh that sigh.
Know that I mean that.
I am sorry I was never good enough.

I always wanted to be that perfect goddess you placed on your pedestal.
Wanted to be without flaws
Wanted to be the one you could love forever.
Wanted to be the one for you.

I tried.
I tried so hard to be what you wanted me to be
But I’m not perfect.
I can’t be your perfect goddess.

I fall from your grace so easily.
I trip.
I stumble.
And you banish me from your life without a second thought.

So, I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough for you.
Know that I tried.
But I will never be perfect
And I deserve to be respected and loved for who I am, flaws and all.

I’m sorry you weren’t good enough to love me for who I am.

Punching bag

I know you hurt
I see the strain in your eyes
Hear the stress in your voice
See the pain etched in your face.

I know I’m not perfect.
Hotheaded.
My wicked sharp tongue used as a shield
Trust never easily gained.

But I am not.
I can not be.
Your scapegoat.
Your emotional punching bag.

Anger and hurt, pain and fear.
They weigh you down.
Instead of taking my hand and letting me walk with you, support you, share with you.
You push me down.

Your words like fists, you pummel my soul.
Reckless, angry, accusatory.
You become all the things you accuse me of.
Carelessly, you wound me and turn away, relieved of some of your burden.

Once you promised me light, love and happiness.
You begged to have the chance to make my life better.
I gave you the chance and bared my heart and soul to you.
Now I wish I didn’t love you.

When did your love turn so harsh?
When did you stop caring for me?
When did your kindess turn to cruelty?
Why didn’t I see it coming?

Broken promises.
Broken words.
Why do I allow my heart to rise, bloodied and torn.
Every time you promise to call?

Why do I care
When your words are so cold, so cruel?
I know I should walk away from you.
Before the wounds you inflict are terminal.

Yet
I hope.
I ache.
I love.

I will be your fool.
I will be your love.
But
I will not be your punching bag.
