Why do you do it? – An Ode to Emotional Abuse
Why do you want to try and still hurt me?
Why do you do the things you do?
The constant lies and threats you throw at me,
Why can’t you just let me go and be free?
You enjoy inflicting pain and sadness
As you sit there all alone in your seat.
Angry that you can no longer control me,
Your mind is filled with hatred and deceit
I now know it is because you have low self-esteem
And are actually really very weak.
You’re a bully and a control freak,
The truth I can now speak.
As I look back on my time with you
I want to say thank you,
For all the lessons that you taught me
As you tried so hard to destroy me.
I am so much stronger in my mind and soul now.
My boys and I are safe and free,
As I found the strength to leave you
And to become the best version I was born to be.
