Those Words

You said things,

these things that hurt

we thought something

you proved wrong

you tried to change,

It didn’t work

we left,

not turning back

you begged for forgiveness

she gave it

we went back

and forth

for years on end

you hurt us,

far too many times

yet she couldn’t leave,

not for good

one night,

everything changed

things were thrown along with words

I hid

police were called

Into custody you went


bruises covered her

my blood boiled

you begged again

and again

I had had enough

for a long time

I saw what you are

she didn’t

she cried for you

I comforted

she finally stopped going back

I wasn’t sure,

sure she wouldn’t waver

she tried

and tried

and tried

and didn’t go back...
