Hurt Me

You pushed me

And I fell to the floor

And you held me in your arms as I cried

And you promised “never again”

And I believed you

And then you slapped me

And you promised “never again”

And I believed you

And then you kicked me

And said it was my fault

And I believed you

And then you broke my arm

And said that I provoked you

And I believed you

And then you said you were going to kill me

And I believed you

This poem is about what it feels like to be trapped in the cycle of an abusive relationship. It does not get better- it just gets worse. To anyone reading this who is in such a relationship you need to leave right away- it is not worth it. No matter what you look or feel like, you are worth so much more and deserve to be in a happy and stable relationship. Abusive relationships are unhealthy and can cause severe physical and mental damage to those involved.

“Evil comes from the abuse of free will” – C. S. Lewis
