"Welcome back Alex, we missed you dearly!"

Dormant, waiting to be awakened,
She rests.
Held in an indefinite slumber,
She dreams.
Reality is based on perception,
She sees her life
Through a warped looking glass.
She paints her canvas
With broad strokes
And crooked lines.

I can see the horizon, it is I.
The world is within my circumference,
The ocean sways in motion with my thoughts,
The stars realign to escort my dreams.
The Earth spins only as I do,
And when I stop, all disappears.

There is a boat, it floats alone.
I drift along in it,
forever approaching my horizon,

So I am doing this thing called a Poetry Slam at my school, and this is one of the pieces I've written that I will be reading on Wednesday. It is a competition, and the top two "Poetry Slammers" get to go on a trip to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to participate in the National Poetry Slam.
Please give me your feedback.

He had a smile on his lips
But embers burning in his eyes.
His razor-blade fingers
Would cut into her wrist.

He disguised his black heart
With whisperings of sweet nothings
And hid his need for control
Beneath a veil of concern.

"Love hurts," he would say.

She would lay awake at night
saying,
"This pain I feel is a burden of love, at least I'm not alone." 

And she would explain away the bruises
Until she had herself convinced
That the mark upon her face
Was from walking into a door

And the broken glass
Glittering red in her skin
Was the result of her own foolish mistake.

Even as her blood
Would sluggishly drip onto the floor,
His snarling face would soften.

He would gently take her
Into his arms
And whisper the words,

"I love you."

So she would forgive him
Because "love hurts."

And she knew the hands
That had come crashing against her
Were also capable
Of wiping away her tears.

And the sharp words
That exited his mouth
Would be erased
By the press of his lips
Upon her temple
As he tells her he is sorry
And he won't do it again.

But how many times
Can someone say they are sorry
Before the phrase loses its meaning?

His once reassuring hand
Upon her shoulder
Now felt like a claw
Digging into her back
Holding her captive.

And she could no longer overlook
The multitude of scars
Tallying up faster and faster
Upon her skin.

Every fight etched into her body,
An unwilling record of their "love"
That she had to hide
Beneath long-sleeves and makeup
So the neighbors
Would not get suspicious

And she began to hide
Behind a smile
So he would not realize
Her dawning horror
And the transformation of her love

From a burning flame

To a fiery hatred

Until one night
When he raised a knife
And she raised a gun

She looked him in the eyes
and said,
"Love hurts, right?"

The symbolic themes are blades and fire. Perhaps something like forging would tie them together?

"This pain I feel is a burden of love, at least I'm not alone."

There shouldn't be just a comma in the middle because it's 2 complete thoughts. Either ", but" or a semicolon.

I wasn't worried about the punctuation because I'm only going to read it, I don't have to present it in written form
