I'll never forget how you snuffed out the light that danced in my eyes...
Stole the rosiness from my cheeks, replacing it with an ashen pallor...
Sucked away my curves of womanhood, leaving in its wake a bony frame reminicent of my preteen years.
You took everything from me, even my autonomy.
My insides rotted, my mind decayed as my intuition countered everything you claimed. I began to question the validity of my own perceptions as I was betrayed
My face numb, I didn't know I was crying.
Desperate to believe the best about you, only to be proven wrong
You plant seeds of doubt, seeds of paranoia, seeds of hopelessness.
Each "loving" word you spoke was a farce...it would shatter if I threw it...
In a million tiny, sharp, mocking pieces it would shatter on the ground,
next to my treasured bracelet of silver, round like eternity with a broken clasp and tarnished heart.
