Killing Me Softly

Killing me softly with his harmful, diseased hurtful words
Illustrated how his many characteristics could be heard
Loudly, menacing not knowing how these words do hurt
Leaving me beyond all excruciating pains of hardened heart
Ironically battered beyond all any mental delusions of my mind
Not even knowing how all these motions had left me hurting as I find
Gifted was his vanity and diseased cutting words as I left

Madly, I left with nowhere else to go and making me feel so bereft
Eternity will lead me to a better place to live quite far from here

Slowly I will get my life right back on track and feel safer else where
Often when I make a decision, I do know I will get better and not feel so abused
Friendlier places and better people I do know I will find a better place and no longer feel used
Traces of hardened lines fill my face with each step as I do walk on
Leaving I know is the best thing I could do and leave this abusive man behind at the near dawn
Yesterdays pains and hurts will no longer be or cause me to change my attitude about hurtful me; for now I now I have the chance to win.

    Excellent, deep and meaningful write, Eden. I love the last line "I have the chance to win". In the end, we are all winners. T.J

    Thank You for your visit Eden! I read this with a heartfelt hope that you are able to put distance between you and something that's hurting your heart and soul! That's the chance to win. I wrote something called "A Different Kind" and when you get a chance please check it out! Keep writing though! You have something important to say! I look forward to reading your works!
