Favorite Quote:
"I look into the crater of the ant."

-Robert Frost


You hit me and so I
cried.
But so kindly you
apologized.
You made it clear I was at
fault
That I am the reason for such an
assault.
I know you don’t think I’m worth my
salt.
But maybe I can try?

But hold me and squeeze me
tight.
so everything will be all
right.
Promise me we’ll never
fight.
Even though you know we will.


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this after listening to the stories of abused women who would stay with their abusers. This is my attempt to get into that mindframe.
