Projection of Cowardice

staying in that situation,
that dreadful,
hellish environment,
will only train your young
in the art of the perfect victim
and apathy,
perhaps worse,
becoming what you so desperately wish
you could fix.
you have been fooled into believing
that this is what you deserve;
that no one could love someone like you;
only them.
only the abuser.
but the sad,
albeit simple truth
is that it cannot be fixed.
no excuses will save you,
no prayers will suffice,
and only when it is too late
will you come to understand
that your attempts to stay
have cost you any chance
of escape.
