Another poem I have written as a part of the Dirty 30 Challenge… Each day had a prompt/theme…. The prompt heme was “unconventional love” 

If I hate myself enough
Maybe you will start love me
Take me like a broken bird and see everything I never show you
Hatred and self loathing
The fine line between pleasure and pain
Hating it when you touch me
Silently begging you to stop
Willing you to continue
Begging for more
My body recoiling at the pain
My soul shivering inside my damaged and tormented body
Daring myself to do more
Begging you for pain
Pulling you across the line
Teaching you to treat me bad
If you hurt all my ugly away
Maybe there will be something left to love
