You should know bullying hurts.

It starts with one word, one word you blurt.

Fat, ugly, worthless. These are the words they hear.

Did you know your'e their biggest fear?

Day by day you torment  them; it takes so long for their hearts to mend.

All they ask for is one true friend, but you make them want their lives to END.

Battle Wounds

"What are these scars from"? she asked

"They're battle wounds". I replied

She looked at me for a long time...

"Who were you battling"?



My bodies cold, lips are blue

Why did I do this because of you?

I feel the earth below me like a pillow under my head.

No knives, no guns, but pills instead.
