Crossing The Line - Poem by Lily Espinosa

Fire searing through my veins
My blood
Running cold
Roiling hate fills my body.
I think of you
And every inch of me cripples
Tense with hatred
The result of betrayal
I would snap if touched.
I'm ridged.

You used me and you enjoyed it
Played your little game.
With me, and she's the bitch
With her, and I'm the whore
I should have seen through you
But it's too late
'Just fifteen and an easy target'
I can almost hear you think.

But that was before
And this is now.
Now things have changed and will never be the same,
I will never be the same.
Now i hate you.

So this is for you,
I hope this makes you see what you've really done to me.
All the pain i know those actions would cause
Could not even touch how you've made me feel
How you make me feel.

Never did i think our love would end like this
Collapsed on the floor tearing at my skin
Ripping away the flesh just to feel
To take away the pain that you've implanted in.

But you saw me in this state,
And you left me,
So many times
You left me.
You've hurt me and you've lost me.
I've hurt myslef.
