Silent Violence

I wanted to be good,

Good to see,

 I wanted to meet those expectations.

I hope he'd notice me. 

I forgot that words could hurt so bad, 

 My mind so foggy and untrained. 

How could someone you love hurt you without the physical pain.

Did he forget that I was alive?

 Will he respect me this time?

Am I worthy of the love he gives? 

Sometimes he makes me feel like I don't want to live.

I've been to the hospital once or twice,

I thought heaven would be pretty nice.

After he saw me in so much pain,

he told me he wanted to make a change.

He did for a while,

it made me smile.

It was like falling in love all over again

I realized his ploy after it was to late. 

Don't ever let someone lead you to make this mistake.
