NEWEST: SUBMISSION 103
The Surviving Kind
Did I leave myself open?Did my scars outline a trail?I know I said I could defeat her,I branded the promise on my skin.But she’s in my hallway, and soonshe’ll be through the door.This time, I’m not sureI’m worth fighting for.
Do you feel love. Do you feel pain. Do you have regrets. Do you have a favorite color. Do you have goals. Do you have dreams. Do you have songs that make you hopeful. Do you feel remorse. Do you want to yell. Does it make you happy.
But maybe those are just easier to hide than bruises. Maybe I wish for something that is obvious abuse so that I can't hide it any longer or sugarcoat a single bit of it. I want everyone to know what kind of monster she's been to me, without any censoring.
