I Wish You Would Just Hit Me

I wish you would just hit me

But you got inside my bones

and split me from the inside.

I hate that I’m that girl

who writes poetry about a boy

to feel human again.

But you’re not a boy,

you’re not a man

You are a leech

That replaced my blood with violence.

It filled me up from the inside, you filled me up from the inside

But that’s a grey area, right?

I wish you would just hit me

Then I would know,

Is it black or is it white?

Oh, your daddy didn’t love you?

Well I’m not your therapist

But I wish you made me your punching bag

Please hit me.

Please baby?

But instead you filled me up.
