Broken beyond repair
You shattered my soul
With only your words
I tried to pick up the pieces
And leave you behind
But trying never brought me any results
Now I lie beside you every night
Praying for darkness
For the moment when I’m finally free
I hope you enjoyed this poem “Shattered.” I don’t know if enjoyed is the right word lol. It’s a pretty dark poem. Somewhat inspired by the things I have been reading or watching. A lot of people are unable to leave abusive relationships. One of the reasons for this is because by the time you realise you need to leave it’s too late. Abusers may make sure you rely on them and can’t leave because of that. Often, victims have no other option but to stay in a toxic relationship. “Shattered” is my attempt to show how victims are often broken down by abusers so they are too afraid to leave. And they are too reliant to leave.
