I wish you knew

I wish you knew the effects of your words

How they kept me up at night

Replaying over and over in my head

Every word and every tone

I wish you knew how your joke killed my peace

When you belittle me, you don’t just kill my smile

You took a piece of me without asking

I wish you knew how much it kills me on the inside

Makes me feel more insignificant than I already am

I wish you knew that the power of your words

Because you don’t realize when you make someone wish they were dead

Maybe even more dead than they already feel on the inside

I wish I wasn’t an overthinker

Then maybe I can stop my whimpers
