Not your fault

It’s not your fault they say 

As they slap you across the face 

As the glass from the shattered plates explode around your head

As they pull you by your hair and lock you in a closet and throw you down the stairs

It’s not your fault when you get thrown to the kitchen floor

It’s not your fault when you get slammed against a wall

Or choked and batted around 

Until you can feel nothing at all

It is his fault not yours

But why then do you feel worthless when they belittle you beyond repair 

Why then do you feel as if it is you

Who should be saying sorry 

Because that’s gaslighting 101

And you know that

But it’s hard to think of anything 

When you’re being kicked on the floor

It never stops

But you should know before they close the door

That it is NEVER your fault

And your life is worth fighting for
