The Woman I Left Behind

woman and dog

She stayed for years

in that relationship.

 

She loved him.

He beat her.

 

She loved him.

He cheated on her.

She loved him.

He stole from her.

 

She loved him.

He did every terrible thing.

She loved him.

One day she left,

fighting hard to save herself.

 

He yelled.

He screamed.

He threatened.

She left.

 

She left everything,

her hopes,

her dreams,

her pride,

her love.

She left everything but the dog.
