you never hurt me,
not physically,
but I still felt the pain
in your words

and maybe there’s no
visible bruise on my skin
but surely there’s a
scar on my heart

—  by shelby leigh
stop waiting for him
to give you the world
when he hasn’t even
loaned you his heart.
—  by shelby leigh

my bones are weak
from carrying you on my back
I have sacrificed
my strength for you
so that I can no longer
smile without pain
and here you are
walking just fine

stronger than ever.

—  don’t forget to help yourself by shelby leigh
