to the one who strikes me down

Speak to me softly, please
Even when you are mad
Frustrated or sad
Treat me gently
I am fragile
handle me with care
Iíve been beaten down with words
Yet still they hold the knives to wound
My scars arenít strengths
Theyíre weaknesses
Where more easily the weapon strikes
So please donít yell
If you love me
I do wish to know your pleasure
Tell it to me kindly, if you care
How we might still fit
Unless you seek to break me
As I am this night
Shattered
Barely pieced back together
Through the tears
Could you, next argument
Only bring your tenderest of words
If you truly love me?
