Sample text:

I stood there, battling with myself.  The various pieces of silverware seemed weighty as I held them in my hand.  My grip was so tight, as my eyes constantly darted to the sharp knives which lay inches from me in the drawer.  It was a minuscule space that I could cross in a fraction of a second.

She was so small compared to me.  I was young and strong.  I couldn’t understand why she’d be so cruel or so hateful, especially when I could so easily overcome her.  I couldn’t fathom what any child could do to make their mother despise them the way she despised me.  The venom in her eyes was like a physical blow and her words stung like acid.

I had only wanted to please her; to be close to her.  I worked to do things that would make her smile or laugh.  All that seemed for naught.  Nothing was ever good enough; I was eternally flawed.  I wondered why she had kept me if I was the life-ending leech she said I was.
