You say you love me
Yet, with every breath you condemn me
Words fly out your mouth without doubt
“Baby I love you, come let me hold you”
“Your breasts are so small, get some implants for me”
Spewing words that threaten to dismantle me
Naively I could not see that YOU were the enemy
Until you declared your love for me
With a punctuated slap and a chokehold that stunned me
Couldn’t catch my breath
I was so perplexed
It get me vex
The anger riled in me
Looking for context
Muted in place
Mind racing to comprehend
Going through the who, what, why, where and when
Dizzy from the mental query
How could all this be happening to me?
What’s going on?
What went wrong?
Who is this man?
Who. He. Be?
Singing sweet words of loving eternity
Only to devour my spirit and suffocate the WILL in me
I didn’t expect a saint
Neither did I expect SATAN
Serving up “love” with a reprimand
I am worth more than the back of a man’s hand
I’ve had enough!
Once is all it takes
No need to be chained to this mistake
You say you love me?
I love me more!
I have a LIFE to LIVE,
Much LOVE to give,
Dreams to fulfill,
A world to explore,
Am walking out the door
Ah ah !
Not. A. Word…
SAVE… the declaration
This relationship just hit its expiration
