Don’t Hurt Me

(Originally composed Monday, October 29, 2007)

Hit the wall
Crash into
Jerk your senses
A kick in your side
Or two kicks
A dull punch
Tune out
Leave your room
Leave your body
Thudding about
Ears hurting from shouts
Words that hurt
Can't believe them
Leave the room
Leave your body
Just for now
Come back for later
But leave now
Head in shock
Just float away
Return when they're gone
It won't hurt
If you leave
Whip, whip
They hate you
Take your mind away
Won't hurt if you pretend
Don't cry out
You're not there
Dull your mind
Don't cry.
