hard lessons


Beth L. Constantine

i feel like i've been
smacked across the face,
wrong wrong again
just the shame, the
unworthiness of my lowly self
fighting for a piece
of truth, of right
the screams still echo,
the words engraved in my head
and no one can hear it
but me
i hear the harshness,
listen to it all day
and all night, when i'm
drunk, when i'm happy,
when i'm making love
and when i'm faking it
need to learn that
biting my tongue is
less painful than responding
