There’s something about the power
that always keeps you wanting more.
So what if the tears flow down her face?
To you, she’s just another w****.

Yelling at her is never enough,
She never seems to understand.
No matter how many times you might scream,
She’ll always try to grab your hand.

She’ll always try to kiss your cheek,
No matter how many times you push her away.
She’ll do the homework that you never did,
And you’ll ignore her day after day.

You’ll always have a good morning text;
When you say you hate it, she’ll do it more.
She’ll listen to you swear and cuss her out;
It’s no big deal; she’s heard it before.

The first time that you raise your hand,
You’ll shatter every piece of your “baby”.
And when you apologize and rub it better,
She’ll always think “This time, maybe.”

But the anger inside you will always rise,
And the girl who loves you will take the pain.
The screaming, the hitting, the broken words,
She will never be the same.

But one day “your girl” will figure out her worth,
And she’ll realize how strong she is.
She’ll let go of you, and find what she deserves,
You’ll lose her; and she’ll be his.


The author's comments:
This piece is about abusive relationships. I personally went through everything in this poem, and it's taken me over a year to write about it. I have since moved out and found someone who actually gives me what I deserve :) anyone going through this...I promise. Think of what you deserve. And you will find it.

Very powerful poem. Though I have never been on either end of such a relationship, the rawness of the language conveyed the emotions well. Well done!

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.

that was deeply moving. To be honest, i teared up a little. you did a fantastic job channeling the pain into amazing writing, and i love how strong and independent the end is, kind of like an "i told you so."

This is....wow....I was in a relationship like this and I completly relate to this poem. But, youre right, everybody is worth something, and once you figure that out, you can walk away. So amazing poem and I am truly sorry for what you went through, but I'm glad that you were able to walk away from it(: Glad you were able to find someone who really cares about you<3
