why do i so often
paint myself
as the victim
i honestly don’t see myself
as a victim
yes. i fall in love with abusers
but i also leave
yes. i come back
once or twice or a dozen times
(my heart is a loving
& hopeful place)
but i am a badass
& i will not stand by
to have abuses
on me
& ultimately
i rescue me
i leave
i heal
it might take a try
or two
but ultimately
i kick ass.
