One Word

One word

One word is all it takes to pull the trigger

to send you back to the day you were dragged down the ally

when they beat to a pulp

to hear them yell 

"faggot"

"whore"

"useless bitch"

One word

One word is all it takes

to send you back to the day they took your innocence 

they held you down

you felt the pain

and now you wonder if you will ever

feel safe 

go out with friends

Love someone

One word

now every day you hear that one word

and your world falls apart.

One word
