Walking On Egg Shells

There is no reason to stay in an abusive relationship no matter how much you love the person, abuse is wrong and it is NOT your fault… if you need help go to The National Domestic Violence Hotline or call the hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE(7233)

You did the best you could

But it never seems to be enough

Another night with heated words

He continues to berate you

Just for being behind on housework

He condemns you for being lazy

When inside you just feel pain

One day soon you’ll reach your limit

And no matter how hard it may be

It will be better to be alone and struggling

Then being his verbal punching bag

For another tormented day
