Hurt …

I am in constant


A pain deep and

haunting that

never leaves me


There are many

forms of abuse

Not all leaving

bruises and scars


A word…

An action…

A look…

Being ignored…

Each intentional

and with purpose

All are forms

of abuse


Mental torture…

Emotional pain…

Are sometimes

so much worse

than a beating

can ever be



They are hidden

and no one

knows but me
