    It's Finally Ended

    He hurt me for so long, in so many ways. Along with his friends. They raped me, beat me, whipped me, molested me, hurt me with words. I fought for awhile, until I realised that it didnt help, it just made them angrier. And if they were angrier, they were more violent. So I let it...

    Prey

    Sunday night I was hanging out with my best friend/brother. For the most part we were having an awesome time, especially since I haven't seen him in months. We were laughing and joking around - then he did what he always does - he pokes me or or pinches me because he thinks the...

    I have a cut off. A person can hurt

    and hurt me and I'll take it and take it. Then something clicks. I can't control when it will be. I wish I could control it, I would cut off sooner. Then something in me clicks. Then that's it. I stop putting up with it. I get sad. I face the hurt. I stop letting the person hurt...

    It's just plain hurtful.

    To be sweet and kind to someone, to show them intimacy and let it go a little further each time, while not being pushy about it all. To show understanding and respect, when you don't really care. It's almost like lying. Even if someone is aware you're not looking for something...

    He Don'T Love Me

    They said if a person loves you truly, he will never let you go no matter how difficult the situations is in life. I didn't let him go but he let me go. Why do I still think about him - A person who didn't love me.

    Forgive And Forget?

    I'm heartbroken. Disappointed

    but what's new. I respect honesty. I feared the same time. The first line of lines is usually not the honesty. I just want to go straight for the honesty! I know it's coming so why not but that be first and foremost? Trust is no longer possible.

    They never beat me in the face

    so that no one can see but my whole family hates me. They call me names and punish me. Like hitting me on my bum or giving me their leftovers cold as food when they are mad or lock me into the pantry. What hurts most is kneeling on stuff. I think they enjoy making me hurt.

    for the fear of getting too close to them. Today I realised how fragile it is to hand your heart to someone and let them do as they wish. It's like all the effort and sacrifices you made weren't enough to tip the scale in your favour. It's always that one little screw up that...
