You cut me.
Over and over again you continue to hurt me.
Do you think I’m silly? Do you think I overreact? Do you think I should simply “get over it?”
“Get over it” is a familiar line. However there is nothing simple about it.
While it’s not your fault my open wounds continue to exist, you remain at fault for adding salt to it.
I have been completely disregarded in your eyes.
Why would that surprise me though?
Hasn’t this been happening for years? Haven’t we always been the best at hurting each other?
Time continues to pass and my wounds haven’t healed. I don’t know how to fix it.
I will seek help, though.
That is one positive thing you have shown me…
I have open wounds that grew deeper with time. I refuse to continue to react in pain, thus, adding wounds to my own children.
