The School Bully - A Relationship Poem

BullySchooThe
You look right through me every day
As if invisible I should stay
Out of sight
Out of mind
You revel in being so unkind
You treat me as if I make you sick
I pretend my skin is thick
I do not wear the same clothes as you
I have never even wanted to
You tease me because of this
With your daily helping of malice
Every day I must wear a mask
To see tears your determined task
Is it the colour of my skin?
Or the fact I suck at Gym?
I am the smallest in the class
Your 'jokes' come thick and fast
Is it because I like Gothic black?
Without warning you verbally attack
Maybe it's the colour of my Auburn hair?
You just point in the corridor and stare
Making gestures behind my back
You never were noted for your tact
If my happiness depended upon you
I'd be at the back of every queue
A few chosen words to cut me deep
Designed to prevent a good nights sleep?
Each night when I lie at home in bed
I regurgitate the harsh words that you've said
I know one day I will leave this school
With cursed memories of you being cruel
I will have my whole life ahead
Instead of wishing that I was dead
Your bullying ways will be a thing of the past
I no longer the elected outcast.

What a wonderful way to tell the story of what bullies can do to your heart and soul. Loved every word. This is a masterpiece - and you most definitely should have had a star for this magical work.
