You promised you’d love me “til death do us part”.
You promised to protect and care for me in “sickness and in health”.
You broke your promise.
You hurt me.
You beat me.
You insulted me.
You made me ashamed.
You crushed my will and my spirit.
I summoned strength.
I sought my inner-courage.
I rose from your feet where you’d beaten me down.
I left you.
Your heart turned black.
You only know how to attack.
You no longer can feel.
I still suffer.
Not at your hand, but in my heart.
You’ve taken all I had.
Yet, you still want more.
You don’t care and you can’t see it,
But you’ve finally broke me,
As I fell to my knees and sobbed on the floor.
