Don’t Hurt Me
By: Ms. K
Love is blind
My lips are silent
It’s hard to escape his love
It can’t hide my bruises
My scars against my eye
My broken ribs
Remembering when you use to rock me
The sweet flowers you sent to my job
Whispering sweet nothing in my ear
Now all I see is blood on my floor
My Black and Blue face reflecting in the cracked mirror
Seeing only mini images of my body
Hearing your deep tenor voice in the background
“CLEAN THIS SHIT UP BITCH”
When you act that way
I can’t control my anger
I do it because I love you
Is this LOVE?
Are my bruises from love?
My body shacking from fear
Is this love?
As I mention before I am apart of the NO MORE Campaign. We are Ending the Silence! We are speaking up and we are showing our courage. As March comes to an end, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)! This year’s campaign focus on healthy sexuality and young people. Join us in spreading the word about #SAAM by participating in the National Sexual Violence Resource Center 30 Days of SAAM Contest! Here how:
Each day in April, post a photo that reflects the day’s theme for your chance to win a SAAM prize pack.
Make sure to use the hashtag #30DAYOFSAAM and tag @NSVRC in your post.
SAY IT. SHARE IT. SHOW IT.
