You deserve that

You deserve that

I repeat my mothers scorn

As the brown leather belt lashes settle into my skin

You deserve that

I remind myself

As another lover Walks out the door

You deserve that

I’m too clingy and annoying

Why would he stay

You deserve that

I say as the cold metal razor blade pierces my skin

Staring at the blank walls of the psych ward again

You deserve that

My therapists words

When I tell her I feel happy again

You deserve that

She tells me

When I swear I found the one

You deserve that

As we celebrate graduation

And engagement

You deserve that

Words that once tore me down

Now build me up

And I deserve that
