REFUSE

I go from crying to smiling,

joy to pain

in the matter of minutes your words tearing me apart,

every syllable is like a sharp knife to my heart

repeatedly,

a grin of vengeance,

a scar unseen but felt,

inside screaming

How could you!

heart beating rapidly until death comes,

the last three words "I HATE YOU" killing me instantly.

I am the stillborn,

you didn't want me, I am more than what u made,

I am present to the living,

death was almost me,

my voice is more than noise,

my feet little but ready to step over the word

"MOTHER",

no questions just hurtful words,

don't touch me,

putting me out like a garbage bag,

I am not trash,

I am simply yours,

you didn't want me and still don't.
