I Survived Domestic Violence

I used to think I did something wrong
Consequently, believing it was all my fault
You say I am nothing so I ask of you
Then why do you want me
You said I was not pretty enough
Yet you chose to spend all your waking moments
keeping track of me
You built my confidence with words
Then tore me down with blows
Pain with no obvious bruising
You said you would destroy me
Though you are the one you really wanted to hurt
You felt big for quite a while
Until I said goodbye
You cried like a baby
As you did not love me
Sought to control every part of me
I knew it was wrong but I stayed believing the things you stated were true
I did really love and want to help you through your pain
All the time I spent was in vain
You were and could never be the man
God intended for me
