Abuse

Another long night of abuse and tears.

I do not know why I am shocked.

This has been our routine for years.

The bruises are darker the night before.

I keep believing that one day I will leave for good.

I tell myself I cannot do this anymore.

I show up to work.

That is where all the lies begin.

No one can know the truth.

Ashamed, I am so ashamed.

I swore that I would not let this happen again.

It is a dark, rainy day and I am wearing sunglasses.

They are all staring.

It is my only way to cover up the blood stains, bruises, and scratches.

One day I will leave and not come back.

Hopefully that one day, is not my last.
