Worthless

When we first met, I was
  caring
  sharing
  loving
to you 
 
After awhile together, you were
  abusing
  bruising
  confusing
to me 
 
Now that I'm alone, I am
  groveling
  cowering
  cringing
to everyone
 
Blows that bruise the face
 can heal without a trace
But words keep their ugly embrace
 that time can never erase
Feeling worthless is a place
 that takes real strength to ever out race.

    gripping tale of need.like the wolf needs the lamb and the cat needs the mouse.without bloodlust the hunter would go to sleep and without the will to survive the prey would simply go away
