Proof of Malice

You cannot love the abuse out of someone.
They will grasp at straws;
they will isolate you
and cut you off from your loved ones.
They will attempt to make themselves appear
as the victim.
They will make you believe you are worthless;
“Who would want you?”
they might ask.
They will refuse healing and help
because the abuser needs to be right;
it isn’t about love or trust or compassion
it is about control.
Even the threat of violence is enough
to control the victim
and after an episode they will apologize
and fill you with false promises of change;
you love Dr. Jekyll
and make excuses for Mr. Hyde
but they are one and the same.
