Broken

You broke me.
Shattered my heart into a million pieces
Leaving me all alone
To pick up the shards and put them back together,
A puzzle where each piece looks identical to the other
Yet none of which fit together.

You broke me,
Along with my spirit and dreams,
Drained my future of any colour
And deprived me of a happy ending.

You tore me to shreds,
Leaving behind a whirlpool of emotions,
Each fighting for the spotlight in my heart,
Making me wonder who I am
For months to come after.

You suffocated me with your lifestyle,
Wants, demands, desires.
Too much thrown at me all at once to handle
Pushing me into overdrive,
Making me lose my mind
And most importantly, my individuality.

And in your memory I am left as a failed experiment,
A doll
Which you couldn’t design to please you the way you wanted to.
A plaything, discarded once her trial expired
And a better one came along.

And no, I am not grateful.
I am not thankful, happy or glad
Despite the lessons I have learned.
Because nothing can quiet my heart and mind
And erase the pain and suffering you have caused me
And I despise you for it.

Deleted User: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong.
