Never Again

He never cared for me like I cared for him

Constant ultimatums to sink or swim.

I was a secret, a lie he told to others

He was ashamed of me in public, in private we fluttered

I was never good enough, he let me know

How he would prize other women for their charm and glow

Still, he kept me around, to give me favor

Pretending to be my love and savior.

One day he told me, he is leaving for good.

And just like that, he left like he should.

I didn’t cry for him, like it thought i would

I cried for the abuse, i didn’t think i could endure.
