Lack of empathy,
A deep sense of mistrust covers the oceans,
White lies cover the land as far as we can see.
Years of abuse,
Traces of physical pain,
All start when you mention the truth,
It’s all your fault, why are you doing this? Are you insane?
Running in fear,
Staying for the children, wishing for the way they were,
Hiding behind every corner, his breath so near,
Life or death,
Tragic or desperate,
Psychological drama induced stress,
Friends wondering why you haven’t left yet.
Apologies and flowers,
Promises and cuddles,
A fresh new started within hours,
Eyes darting, lips biting waiting for a bursting bubble.
