a poem by Erin

Have you ever been in a situation were you felt powerless?
the world spins and everyone’s against you.
I’m depressed.
Your stomach hurts and heart clenches
You feel light-headed
Like someone’s craving with a sharp knife, over, and over.
That name.
That name that hurts you. That you can’t stop
words can’t describe it.
Words are powerless to stop it.
It’s in your throat and mouth.
It’s powerless
yet powerful.
No one knows it’s there
Not him.
