Don’t Take it Personal

(Poetic Asides Prompt “addict”)

In an instance fun is gone

she’s yelling

telling you

you’re worthless

fat

a waste of space

a disgrace.

Try not to take it personal

she doesn’t really mean it.

She’d hurl those words at herself

if she wasn’t so fragile.

Instead she takes another swig

and drowns her memories

of times when someone else

hurled those hurtful things

damaging

demeaning

self-esteem destroyed.

She turned to substances

to fill her body with

warmth.

But in the end,

they only left her

cold.
