Domestic violence

How did it get this far

I close my eyes and the memories come rushing back

yours was the perfect smile. You always said the right words

that I wanted to hear. I used to welcome your warm embrace,

Now I cringe at your touch. How did it get this far?

Too many apologies, too many I forgive you

too many bruises that I have to hide

How did it get this far?
