Your love broke me

Updated on March 10, 2015

One day; you say you love me & would do any and everything for me. You would be by my side when I laid ill. You would wash my hair, cook me meals & wash my clothes when I could not. You would defend me if I was verbally attacked. You would go out of your way to make me smile; you lifted my spirits by encouraging me with your love. You showered me with gifts & flowers & all my favorite things in the world. You showed me how much you wanted me. This is a man who every woman would want.

The next day; you say you love me yet; when no one is looking, you slap me so hard for not agreeing with you. You walk around with an image that no one would ever imagine your evilness. You say you love me but have left me with scars I can do without. Broken bones, bruised face, emotional scars I had concealed. You say you love me & yet have pulled out much of my hair when you throw me around like a ragdoll. I cry on the floor you come over to me and beg for forgiveness, tell me you’re sorry. A plea I have heard many times before. You say you love me and flaunt me like I’m a trophy, yet you beat me, torment me & ridicule me. I want none of your love.

No one will ever see my pain or your ugliness because you say you love me & won’t let me be. Time after time I have thought to leave & your sorrow plea at how no one will love me compels me to stay.

I am trapped; I am a fool & know I will never escape you. You say you love me & will never set me free. I think of all the good in you and wonder how you can be so evil when you say you love me. I will never speak a word of what goes on, I will defend you to everyone. I know what I must do to protect myself and stop loving you.

You say you love me and can’t be without me. I leave you with this note to tell you I loved you once a lifetime ago, for all what you have done to me no one can fix or hear my plea. I have chosen to be loved by one who will love me unconditionally & will never hurt me. You say you love me, now you have no choice to be without me, for I have taken my life & now I have been spiritually set free.

      Thank You. It is non-fiction. I've always written or write what I have felt or feel. It's the only way I know how to express myself.

      Based on your last line, it sounds like you got away. If this is fiction, good. You did a great job with your creativity. But if it really happened to you, I'm glad you found someone who took you away from that.

      Welcome to HubPages, I see you recently started here. Keep writing.
