Crushed Hopes And Dreams - Poem by Heather Rhoden

You take joy in my pain.
You laugh at my sorrow.
It is always the same.
I dread every tomorrow.

How could you do this?
How could you dare?
I have to hide the bruises.
I have to live with the stares.

You spit on my dreams.
You crush my hopes.
My wrists continue to bleed.
The blade finally sends me home.
