Retaliation

I bared my soul today I cracked open my chest and offered you my bleeding heart. I crawled across broken class and laid myself bare to you and you just laughed…………

I begged, I pleaded, I appealed to your kinder side, you slapped my face called in your friends so I had nowhere to hide.

You put me on the rack of your contempt and dribbled acid like bile. To hurt me deeply you were hell bent.

You exposed everyone of my deepest darkest secrets all the thoughts I entrusted to you and you alone. You tied me down and stripped my skin down to the bone.

You exposed every nerve every muscle you ripped me limb from limb and tossed me to the wolves.

I am sorry I couldn’t stand it any more something cracked when you called me a filthy whore. All the things you had done all the names and games you called me in fun. I am finished now I am stronger than you I am ready to admit to and pay for what I have done.

    You tear at my heart and I feel your pain. For the emotions that are behind this poem, I hug you with my heart.

      Thank you she finally found her free will. She rounded on him, she was happy to sacrifice her physical freedom to gain her mental freedom. I don’t condone what she did but I really do admire her.

    As I read your post, the first thought that came to me was “freedom.” One of my favourite freedom quotes is by the philosopher, Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805): β€œGrace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom. β€œ

    I sometimes think you must write from many souls that pass this way….
    as always, you touch someones thoughts they try to hide from their heart
