Left for Dead

By Your Perfect Poison

Can't sleep
           Can't even comprehend how to close my eyes
Can't eat
           Can't even remember how to chew food
Can't think
           Can't even think about thinking
Can't speak
           Can't get the words to make themselves
Can't do anything
           Can't even write this

This letter to you telling you how you affected me
How you hurt me so bad, so bad I can't even function
I just sit and remember everything
Remember every burning moment
And how you tried to sweeten it
With your words like acid on my brain
Disintegrating all that helped me live,
My will to survive, my soul, my very passion for life

I hope you see this
      I hope you see you're a monster
I hope it hurts
      I hope you die
I will not forgive you
      I cannot forget
How you tore my life apart
      And left me for dead

    It's amazing how a person can absorb so much pain and continue to exist. I admire you.

    I like the construction of this one, magnificent. You are doing the right thing though, write out all the bad shit... never dwell and let it fester. I especially like the first part... How a person shuts down, when a pain becomes too extreme. Nice write. TY4YP.
