Like diamond
On glass
You cut me…
Pieces fell,
And lost…

Like a knife
To the heart
You did your
To control all…
Leaving me
With what?

I remember
“For better
Or for worse”…
Not bad, worse.
& Intolerable
Abuse comes in
More ways than one

    Really really good Robert! I identify with this too… Love sucks 😔

      Thank you, Suzanne. I know what you mean, but what this describes isn’t love…like I said, it’s abuse of the whole idea of love. Psychological abuse. It’s way too common. I think it afflicts nice people.

        It’s also so much harder to heal. Bruises go away… Psychological abuse take much longer..

        Much longer, if ever. It takes all the energy you can muster. But I think that usually comes along with bruises. Many people are just too toxic to each other to be together. Fear keeps them frozen in place, and the beating goes on. :-/
