Pattern

Ive seen the pattern
day in day out
powerful
dominating
the mans man
Ive been through them all
and expiernced every pain possible
abuse
lies
and forced sex
always ending the same
fighting for
my life
sanity
and dignity
everytime I would hope
they would be the one that
protected me
cherished me
and would be there for me
like I was to them
wanting them to
open doors
caress my face
ans say its going to be okay
instead all I got was
hands slammed in doors
because my nails were not painted
knuckle on my cheeks
because I spoke out of turn
and being called a whore
because my dress did not reach my calves
but I am strong
faithful
and worthy
of the man I hope to meet
I know my strengths, attributes, and goals
I have to live for myself
and not the next man
who says they need me
one day the pattern will be broken

Artist's Description

I took a break from the dating community because after this poem I realized I needed to work on myself and not the next loser I came across.
