By Dominique, age 15, Wisconsin
Break my heart and still you tease,
Poking and kicking at my pieces.
I hate how you drive me crazy
And when I harden, you still find my weakness.
I can't stand how you say you love me
But can't wait to see me hurt.
How you keep coming up with ways
To make me feel worse.
Of course I am stupid in your eyes
Because of the steps I'm taking,
But to me you are stupid
Because of the enemy you're making.
Retaliation must be what you want
But that would show I cared and that's not the case.
I'd much rather ignore you
So you could just keep out of my way.
I will not give in because I've never been so weak,
Not like this.
I'm glad I was raised not to act like you,
So, so childish.
