And just for thought...
He stood behind her, covered by the wall,
Safe because she had her back turned towards him,
Safe because he knows all he has to do is say the words
Without meaning because she will always believe.
So she screamed fuck you because she was tired,
Tired of the lies he throws out there as bait,
Bait to believe he’ll never abandon her.
She stood by the kitchen sink, not caring about the stains,
Safe because he couldn’t see the hate raging inside her for him,
Safe because she knows the truth of what he really is
Without him ever saying a single word.
His lies scream from his eyes
From the way he looks at her to the way he smiles.
He is safe as long as he can manipulate her,
Safe because he deems her weak, incapable,
Safe because he knows his hands will keep her in line.
So she turned around with her red eyes and sighed
Because she knew he hadn’t heard a tear she cried,
Because she knew he would always be back with more lies
After a few months when his charm ran out elsewhere.
She was safe until someone else turned their back on him
Because she was his comfort zone, his welcome mat.
He stood at the door, hiding under his hat,
Safe because she couldn’t see his eyes when he said he would never abandon her,
Safe because she knew she just heard his greatest lie yet.
She stood with her hand on the door and finally shut it
Because she finally understood this man was toxic,
Because she finally accepted she was better than him…
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
