    Fun


    Was it fun to degrade me,
    Accusing me of activities
    That I never did?

    Was it fun to threaten me,
    To have me live in fear
    Of what you’d do next?

    Was it fun to isolate me,
    To cut my contact with family or friends
    And lie to them about the situation?

    Was it fun to rape,
    To coerce me into submission
    And take advantage?

    Was it fun to call me names,
    The never-ending list of ugly
    Expletives and obscenities?

    Was it fun to watch me jump,
    Each time you threw a chair
    Or banged a wall?

    Was it fun to damage this spirit,
    That still reverberates with
    The consequences of your cruelty?

    I'm sorry, I can't believe that one human could treat another so cruelly, and leave such deep scars on such a beautiful, unique spirit... I can only imagine how you would soar.

    Thanks, I consider myself fortunate. So many live through so much worse and for so much longer than I.

    I really like how you gave it a happy title, but it's nothing of the sorts. Really well written
