    i tend to write a lot about my abuser but this one may be triggering so be cautious when reading.

    He kissed her scars
    One peck on each wrist
    So he wouldn't feel guilty
    When he grabbed them.

    He bought her flowers,
    A bouquet of daisies a day,
    So his insults seemed a little less bitter
    And his jealousy, less manipulative.

    He made her smile each day
    So he wouldn't feel remorse
    When he stole her things
    And stole her friends.

    She never thought of freedom,
    However the days when he was gone
    Were much better
    Than when he haunted her presence.

    She wanted to stay with him
    Because he would always tell her,
    “No one has ever loved me, stuck with me,
    Quite as long as you have.”

    She wanted to save him
    Because he tried to kill himself twice
    And said it was her friends' faults,
    Never taking responsibility.

    She tried to stand up for herself
    And decided she could stand no longer,
    And when her own suicide attempt failed
    She decided it was not the standing up she couldn't bear.

    It was him.

    This seems to be about you rather than your ex gf.

    its sort of about both? i used a male pronoun for her in the poem but its still about her, or our relationship.
