Poem

He pulls my hair
He slaps my face
He kicks me on the floor

I love him so much
So I don't have the strength
To walk right out the door

There's blood on my face
Everything hurts
& all I can do is cry

I made him mad
So this is what he does
I wish I knew his reason why

My heart wont let me leave him
& it hurts too much to try

I wonder if this is how my life will be
From now until I die

He says he's sorry
He takes me in his arms
He even starts to cry

I tell him I forgive him
& that everything is fine

For now at least because I know
It will happen again in time




Summary; No matter what the girl is going through she will always love the abuser because he says he's sorry and because she loves him and cant help it.
