I'm Not Breakable By: cowgirl_11 A song can mean the story of someone's life to one person. While to another it mean nothing at all. This is one of those songs. It may mean nothing to you. But, to me it taught me something about myself. All I ask is that you read it and open you mind to the possiblities of it teaching you something about yourself. The name of the song is "Break me, Shake me" by Savage Garden. ________________________________________________________________________ In the darkness she listens to the song that describes her life to a T. She should have the chorus tattooed to her forehead. She listens to the song to see if it would bring enlightment to her battered soul. If it could maybe repair the unrepairable. “I never thought I'd change my opinion again But you moved me in a way that I've never known Moved me in a way that I've never known.” Every man in her life had moved her in a different way. She wasn't someone that played around with other people's feelings. She didn't do anything with anyone unless she felt something for him or her. A user of the body or mind, she wasn't. “But straight away you just moved into position again You abused me in a way that I've never known. You abused me in a way that I've never known.” Every man in her life had abused her in some way, shape, or form. From a father who thought she was better off without him. This abused her mentally by keeping his love from her. She had abuse from cousins, neighbors, and the boy next door that she had a crush on. They all abused her sexually. Her ex-husband abused her mentally, physical, and emotionally. “So break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone. Just break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone." When the madness of the abuse stopped, they were alone. For she had given them all of herself, given them everything that was made up of her. They threw it back in the girl's face. Told her things that can't or won't be repeated here. Then they up and left her. They were alone, not the girl. For the girl had a piece of them inside of her. She had the pain of being abused. It would live with her forever. “So you're the kind that deals with the games in the mind Well you confuse me in a way that I've never known You confuse me in a way that I've never known." So many of them had played with her mind. So many of them had gotten her to do different things out of love. She had been confused about the word love. They had confused her about being loved. The chorus plays on as she thinks about all those people in her life. How could she have let herself be used this way? Simple, it was the only way she knew of to get the attention she craves. It was the only way she could get the love she craved. It never really filled the void. To this day, she is still looking to be loved and to love. “She says, ' I can help you, but what do you say?'
