"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

You hurt me
so you can feel big
my confidence
snaps like a twig
the slippery slope
goes straight downhill
and as I fall
I loose freewill.
Once at rock bottom
I slowly drag
and I'm silently waving
a thousand white flags
You're lifting me up
back in the air
but it doesn't matter
the scars are still there

The author's comments:
More about verbal abuse, like talking behind backs and stuff but I suppose it could also apply to physical abuse. Whatever you want really.
