How do you let him treat you like that?
He lies to your face,
On the phone,
He even lies about things that you already know.
He made friends with the girl
Who tried to destroy your relationship,
And he even lied about that, too.
He sleeps through his classes,
And he says that he passes
With grades that are B's,
Your friend pulled it up,
He has C's and a D,
And a hundred in P.E.,
So he even lied about that, too.
He gets angry at you when you leave him on read,
But you were just finishing homework.
You tell him you were trying to get good grades in school,
Further your education,
That you cared about your future.
He took all your words and twisted them up,
That you said,
That he said,
That he didn't care about his future.
You cried that night.
He picks these petty little fights,
He does this over things that aren't important.
It was raining that day,
The sidewalk was full,
So you walked through it.
He told you it was cold so he wasn't talking.
But five minutes before you had to leave,
He told you it was because you walked through the rain.
So I guess he even lied about that, too.
One day one of your friends made a comment
About how cold your hands were.
That night he texted your friend,
Thinking that they were trying to get with you.
Your friend told you,
Sent you the screenshots.
So you asked him if he was planning on texting your friend,
(Even though you knew he already did),
He said he probably wouldn't.
It seems he lied about that, too.
And he doesn't just lie.
Your friend was fired up,
Saying some kid said they'd bring them money,
But they hadn't seen them yet.
You turned to him and said,
Hey, they sound like you.
You were joking,
You even let out a chuckle after you made the comment.
But he looked you in the eyes,
And he told you that,
You don't f*ing talk to him that way.
I could go on,
I could talk about how often it seems
That he argues with you,
And makes you cry and break down,
All alone in your room,
Probably while he plays video games,
And talks with his friends.
He said he wanted to marry you,
He said that if it didn't happen he'd off himself.
But he can't even get through a high school argument.
He tells you he feels "tense".
That he doesn't like talking about it,
That you should change the subject,
Talk about something happier.
How do let him treat you like that?
You say you've been in abusive relationships,
But you can't seem to see the one you're in.
She's one of my closest friends, and it breaks my heart.
(I've been trying to only post one every 24 hours-ish, but I just needed to get this out.)
