You took my beauty,

You took my self-esteem,

You took my will,

You took my mind, body & soul,

You took my dignity,

You took my fashion,

You kept my friends away,

You kept my family away,

You left me alone, thinking that all I had was you.

You made me believe you were all I had,

You made me believe that no one else would love me,

You humiliated me in every way possible,

You took my journals, and invaded my privacy,

You got to know my weakness, fears, and you felt at home.

You gave me nothing,

I gave you everything.

We created life together,

You destroyed what we have, and you hurt me emotionally,

When you felt down in the dark, I rise from almost nothing.

I took my beauty back,

My self-esteem,

My will,

My dignity,

My fashion,

My friends,

My family,

I’m no longer alone.

I’m not afraid to take a stand,

I don’t believe a word you said.

My favor lie was when you told me “I promise, I won’t do it again”

Now I promise, I won’t ever let you hurt me again.

I’m strong,

I love myself,

I believe in myself,

I have my love ones,

I truly don’t hate you.

I forgive you.

I forgive me.

I move on.

I am done.

I am free of your manipulation.

You see me, but I’m no longer available.

      Just going to tweet this hub to my twitter followers. Your hub should be featured here in the "Featured Hubs".

      Wow, that was an interesting and intense hub. I am glad that a hub like this can be written. It means the person writing it can equate with abandoning a toxic person, if indeed such a thing were to happen. No one should have to endure an experience like that. Stemming and closing off somebody's creativity is so against what I strive for in life. I cannot live without my creativity, or love of poetry. Life is too short, and there are still so many things to see, endure - enjoy and love still.

      Voted up, and I wish there was a button for brave writing as I would have pressed that one.
