Taught My Strength

The ambience of my beating chamber
Hostile to my own presence
Mouth-watering raw wounds
For the sadistic narcissist
You think that you hide so well
Feasting on the pain you cause
Illuminating from within
The more terrible and dramatic
You live to dissect the lives of others
Leave them broken and in pieces
Exhilarate in this accomplishment
Bathe in your sanctimonious belief
It was always their weakness
And never your inhumane brutality
But in my healing I grow stronger
Learn the lesson that you gift me
I am important
I matter
I deserve better
And I get it
Because my truth knows
And I learn
To find comfort and love
Within my beating chamber
