Image for the poem hurt

hurt

 
I know all about psych wards
the patients were frightened of me
I came to know my power inside one

a schizophrenic mom led the way
abandoned me at a playground at age three
but I had my wits about me early on
good thing or I would be a dead girl

I don't trust women down deep
I always expect them to leave when I need them
because they usually do

I'm an outcast I get on everyone's nerves
you won't catch me standing still
I move person to person
because too much of me will overdose you

repressed anger burns my tongue
I spill acid cause that's how I feel
I'm not an evil bitch
but I admit I will cut before I let anyone near

love hurts as a rule
I don't have real faith
if I told you my beliefs
you would think blasphemy

I don't know why you changed your mind
and decided I wasn't worth it
suffice to say I'm used to it

I'm broken and damaged
I don't shine
hold me at arm's length
where I feel safest
