He lifts his hand to her face when she’s brave
She’s tired of the emotional abuse at bay
Whilst it tears her up inside
He continues on taking strides.
She talks to him but receives dead air
Ignored and slipping through a world unfair
Some day’s she takes it with a grain of salt
Others she can’t and things blow up
He stifles her with his “He knows better’s”
Stumbling her confidence like a fraying sweater.
She does it for the sake of her children
He takes advantage of that
She cries at night in her darkest helm
Slowly dying overwhelmed.
Emotional, physical, verbal abuse.
Yelling, screaming, and arguing.
Everything he does or says
Always seems to be justified
He takes her pride and crushes her soul
Keeps her at his beck and call
While she struggles to find happiness
He can’t wait to step on it.
Abusive by nature
This evil creature
He walks along without a care
While he is slowly destroying her.
