The harshest truth is that he cant live
without the your constant attention.
Your emotional pain feeds his gluttonous soul.
His egotism tells him he is the reason you are broken
and he smiles .
Don’t look for revenge,that merely feeds
but to give no response will make him
try even harder to hurt you.
His need to remain in control is boundless,
and always he smiles
And yet, you still hope for a reaction.
His Ted Bundy like charm used fearlessly to blind reason,
but who hasn’t used charm to ingratiate a boss?,
to make us appear ‘nice’?
Empathy not their default mode,
guilt free and remorseless,
the perfect, smiling Politician.
Too long you wait for change, love, affection
Fractured mind, bleeding knees,
He is the beast scratching at your door,
willing you to open up, let him in, to hurt again
whilst always smiling…
Latch that lock, lose the anger,
only let kindness and trust back in
You are still here,
You are still you
