You woke me up this morning

First, hitting my skin

Then bending my spine.

I know you saw it

break and crack

but staring, you did nothing.

If that wasnt enough for you

You shone a light inside

and pulled my pages

back and forth

despite my ripping pain.

After a while, you broke me again

bending my skin back

to save your place

You slammed me down

and walked away, forgetting about me again.

You left me alone, all day long

until the night darkened and 

you came to bed

You picked me up

and did it all again....

and I know it will be the same story tomorrow.
