Happy Birthday

July 17th, 2017

You told me that you loved me
With your hands around my neck
I cowered under your dominance
To prevent another threat
You told me you were sorry
But I couldn’t stop crying
Sometimes I go back to this moment
To remember why I gave up trying
You told me I would never find someone
Who would treat me as good as you
And I walked out your door
To do just what you challenged me to
It took much too long to realize
Your self inflicted wounds weren’t caused by me
And your obsession with controlling
Had finally found its ending
