Each Word

With each word you speak,

I bend away.

Away from the contact.

away from the pain.

I've bent so much.

I might just break.

I might just snap.

Pray for my sake.

With each word you speak,

My body shakes.

And I don't know.

how much more I can take.

So let me go.

Shove me away.

I should have known.

Now take my place.

Don't you dare mourn.

You don't have the right.

It's your fault I'm torn.

And it took my life.

My family
