Broken

Yes I’m broken
         but not beyond repair 
         tragically I’ve endured
your lies and mental despair.

Did you really think
         you’d completely break
         me, when you’ve seen
that I’m clearly not that weak.

I’m no longer that 
         vulnerable woman you
         married many eons ago
thinking you could still subdue.

I’m wise to your contempt
         and the constant looks of
         self-righteous bitterness
when the push has come to shove. 

Taking what you want at will
         vehemently you demand
         that everything goes your
way with a wicked show of hand.

This routine has become old
         As so have you my dear
         And yet you still don’t 
get it, love was your greatest fear.

So yes, I am broken
         I’ve begun to fix what’s been
         done, the damage you’ve created
I will find myself once again
