    I have been
    beaten,
    ripped,
    torn,
    and utterley destroyed.

    I have been stepped on
    so many times that
    the pain no longer feels as sharp as it did
    when I first got broken into.
    When hurt first entered my life, it felt
    like a machete to my most
    sensitive limbs.
    Tears fell so much like the sap from a tree...
    it came natural.

    I am weathered....

    I am tired of fighting a battle repeatedly
    in which the outcome is always the same.
    I come in fighting, heart ready to defend.
    I come out crying, heart barely able to mend.

    Have you ever cried so much that your head hurt??

    I have.....


    I am a weathered,
    beaten,
    18 year old woman...


    Here to testify that love beat the hell out of me

    Weathered...such an appropriate title. There will be many other storms, but hopefully, most won't be as severe. This one hit hard like a hammer. Keep your head up.

    My sister....Whoa
    this was somekinda powerful...
    You... my young 18yr old woman
    are an old soul although young
    and yes...I feel your pain completely
    you would not believe, I just
    completed a piece with a very
    similar concept...as I read you
    I thought...we are on the same page
    and feeling the same vibe
    Cause this love thing...is just
    Criminal...

    Extraordinary Peace :bowdown:

    "I don't know why the heart doesn't do what the mind tells it." I may not have the wording exactly right, but it is from Brown Sugar. You laid this down. Sadly, this pain may be replaced with another, but your strength will come from learning lessons each time you fall down. Keep your head sista. You will make it through
