"It's good, but you can do better."

All she ever did was scoff

And I wondered 

How do you have the audacity

To string me up

And force your hand down my throat

And make me talk as you do

Make me lose myself

In the pity that is controlled


All she ever did was scoff

With a bite as sharp as the winter

And a mouth of a sailor

Venom pressed ruby red lips

She was beautiful don't get me wrong

But behind that placating smile

And dark eyes

was the reality...



The reality of



Self Esteem

The voice that always pulled me back.
