Your words have been written in red

Things felt

That shouldn't have been said

Red words my mind can't erase

Feelings my heart struggles to face

Betrayed, rejected

You left me

Completely disrespected,

Who do you think you are

To make those red marks

On my life

Leaving demands

For an unwanted rewrite

Scared and used

You leave me

Completely confused

I called you family

But all you do

Is try to change me

Mold me into something I'm not

Chasing away demons

I've already fought

Your words have been written in red

Things felt

That should NOT have been said

Red words my mind can't erase

And yet they are words

I know I can face

Betrayed, rejected

And yet I remain strong and

Unaffected

You can cut and you can bruise

Its not me you're hurting;

Only you!

Your words have been written in red

Things felt,

That shouldn't have been said

Words with more adjectives than I can name

Hurtful, deceitful,

Are some I have made

Ink smudges over time

And I think you'll remember this little rhyme:

Words hurt when written in red

But like the blue current

That transforms before dead

I have more important things to worry about

Than you're stupid thoughts in RED!
