You Hurt Me

Copyright Georgia

I wish these words were easy to say
But the pain just won’t go away
My reflection doesn’t lie
I can’t see what I want to see
No matter how much I try

Sitting on my bed
And you know
I’m thinking about what you said
I know it’s true
But I didn’t expect it would come from you
You always make me feel small
I think you like to watch me fall

As waves of sadness wash over me
I pick up the only thing that will set me free
Draw a line or two
Scratch out memories of you
Watch me bleed
This is what I so sorely need
I smile with content
This is the letter I never sent

Words can only say so much
But things only can be calm
When skin and metal touch
