A poem from the female perspective of a controlling and toxic relationship.


by Rebecca Delphine

he said she was broken he could fix her

a complicated puzzle only he knew how to crack

she trusted his face didn't know he wore a mask

couldn't feel the knife cutting in her back

he said she was a puppet she listened

he painted her with pity and disdain

she had to atone for the sins in her past

he tugged her strings and she suffered the pain

his stories were all lies she didn't notice

he got so good they believed every last one

she was his problem a mess he had to clean

he aimed for her head and she steadied the gun

he moulded and shaped a master craftsman

sculpted her into what he thought she should be

he chipped and he scraped he peeled her away

until all that was left of her was me
