Two years pass with a man who I believe to be my other half. He brings me flowers and candy to show the affection.
Two months pass with the man who I believe to be my better half. He talks of me but does not take me around town as he used to.
Two weeks pass with the man who I believe to be a horrible monster. He shows up asking questions about made up situations.
Two days pass with the man who I believe to know so well. He stares with hatred through my tears and asks where I was during work.
Two hours pass with the man who I believed to be a better man. He's going backward rather than trying to take it a day at a time.
Two minutes pass with the man who I believed to be my better half. He lays awake while hiding my keys so I won't leave.
...two minutes pass ...two times he's said ...."I'm sorry honey.. please let's go to bed...I promise I won't hit you anymore...just please don't make me mad.."
And here I lay..besides the monster who I thought I would have left two years ago...
