Relationships

He loves me

“I love you,” he said last night

as he held me tight.

His words were like magic to my ears.

Today he came home angry

and his fist almost sent me

flying down the stair.

“I am leaving,” I screamed

“You wouldn’t dare,” he said.

“If you do I’ll find you and kill you.”

I stared at him trying hard to understand

How this sweet loving man can sometimes

change on me like a chameleon.

He doesn’t mean it you know

After all he loves me!

ps. Often times women find themselves caught up in these situation. Take any threat on your life serious. If he says he will kill you, don’t convince yourself that he won’t. Seek help. Get out. Save yourself.
