She wanted love so badly,
She let him treat her wrong,
Belittling her, hitting her,
She tried to be strong.
She thought she could change him,
That her love would make him see,
But his words cut like a knife,
Leaving her feeling empty.
She gave him chance after chance,
Hoping he'd see the light,
But he only took advantage,
Taking pleasure in her plight.
Her heart was shattered,
But she still held on,
Thinking love would conquer all,
Until the bitter end was drawn.
She finally found the strength,
To break free from his grasp,
Leaving behind the pain and hurt,
And starting anew at last.
She learned a valuable lesson,
That love shouldn't hurt this way,
And she vowed to never again,
Let someone treat her that way.
