Abuse Poem

This poem was written for anyone who has ever been or even know someone that's been in an abusive relationship... I know your heart...

Scars

© Jennifer Michelle Jones
I've been with you far too long
and all you did was treat me wrong.
I loved, and cared, and catered to you;
I lost my mind and all you'll find
are all the scares that are left behind.
I was told once, twice, three times or more
to leave you alone and be on my own.
I wouldn't listen to anyone but you
because when you said you loved me,
I was head over hills.
You used me and abused me and hit me hard;
The scares will leave, disappear;
but what will never fade is the fear of you in my heart.
