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 

“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?'
