Pieces of Me

I spew venom from my mouth

Trying to inflict pain back on you 

and then wonder why we can’t break this cycle of DISRESPECT

TDR

His harsh words cut through me like a sword

and,

I just sat there

Trying to figure out how to have thicker skin

Instead of considering it was he who had the problem

TDR

Society has me confused

I don’t know the difference between being DISRESPECTED

and

being SENSITIVE

TDR

You have given too much power

when the things that once made you proud

Now make you hold your head in shame

And the only difference is his presence

TDR

Being damaged DOES NOT give you the right to damage me

TDR

I thought I could love the pain and damage away until

I realized how much pain I was now in

TDR

I have become the monster that you once were

spewing venom

with the hopes of hurting you before you hurt me

TDR

Motherhood was exhausting when I was trying to teach my girls self-love as they

watched me sit on the couch loveless
