Punish me

You've buried labels so deep into my chest I barley remember my own name. I guess "monster" just seems fitting. All I've ever wanted was to make you proud of me, but giving you my best was never enough for you. I try to convince myself that one day you'll see me as anything other than a failure. 

I know you wouldn't hit me but I wish you would... I want you to pound your fists into me instead of your words. Leave me bruised but not completely broken. Punish me for never pleasing you and maybe that will strip me of my shame. I NEED YOUR ACCEPTANCE.

The End
