To The Person Who Permanently Broke Me

You beat me with your harsh words until I was too broken to fix. You made me unhappy. I tried to be myself, but that was not enough. I tried to be someone I thought you would like but, that was also not enough. No matter what, I was not enough. Quickly the world turned cold and dark from your beatings. You broke me; I don’t know what to do. Because of you, I live my life tired, beaten and broken.

I silently screamed into the pillow,
While tears flowed down my cheeks.
I tried to compose myself.  
But, all I could think was,
“I am tired, beaten and broken.”

No matter what I did, you just buried me in the ground.
You broke me, beat me and wore me out,
So you could sculpt me into the person you wanted me to be.
Underneath that fake person you created,
My soul became,
Tired, beaten and broken.

Happiness is gone from my life.
You’ve destroyed me through your manipulation and games.
Disguising my true identity to save face.
Because of you,
I live my life
Tired, beaten and broken.
