Second Skin

My Broken Heart

No wonder you felt familiar;
your criticisms were like home.


Your hurtful words were
what I spent my life hearing.


Pain is an emotion I know well;
it is like a second skin.


But I know have so many tears
reserved for someone like you.


You've reached your allotment
so I will have to say goodbye.


The sad thing is losing you
hurts more than all your abuse.
