Real


Talked a big talk

How much of a better

Man

He was

Constantly compared himself

To someone

He desperately

Competed with

Comparisons

Unnecessary

For

Not some one

Racing with him.

Yet

All consuming

He joined in

Hoping to win

The right

To be considered.

The BETTER MAN

⚫️

He did win

A race

That night

One low life’s trek

For, it wasn’t a man

He’d become nor was

Merely a B$&@#H

With a history

Of hitting woman.

⚫️

All those years he’d

Fed her ears

Told her it was his woman

Who were the abusive ones.

And

Putting HER ex

On

A chopping block

⚫️

He put so much energy

Into

Pointing out others flaws

Tearing into characters.

Stating others failures.

Attempting

To bring a light

To others “toxicity”

Only

He wasn’t MAN enough

To stand with his own self

Recognize

His OWN

Toxic traits and flaws

A mirror.

He fearfully avoided.

⚫️

What was once seen

As genuine.

In retrospect

It WAS his tactic.

His means…

To isolate.

    Sorry that you experienced that; through groups, coffee shop readings, and school poetry classes, I came into contact with other victims. My most recent poetry has been trying to make sense of my own trauma that I experienced, my back pain that I have developed triggers memories of molestation and rape I wish to forget. Such brutal poetry is difficult, but out of it comes healing; at first it might be difficult to find the light: so many of us writers have had traggic childhoods/adulthoods, but that seems to be a great thing in poetry itself and its meditative act that can cause healing. I hope the practice of letting go helps you find solace.

    A man who once claimed I was the love of his life. One and only. Soul mate. However, I was only that provided I enabled the addictions and the behaviors. When I didn’t approve of the addiction nor the behaviors tied to it he lashed out
