The Voice of Domestic Violence: If I had a dime for every time…

You promised me you would no longer hurt me

(your hands and your words where your weapons)

You promised to spend more time with me

(Instead of you just drinking)

You made me feel like your servant

(instead of your partner)

I cried myself to sleep and you didn’t even know it

I ached all over my body, but didn’t want your pity

I wished I could turn back the clock to when we first me

You didn’t know when and how much I needed you

(the you from when we first met)

You made promises you knew you couldn’t and wouldn’t keep

You chased away everyone I loved

I wished I could be anywhere else, with anyone else

I wished I had never met you

I told myself I would leave and never look back

Well, look at me now…I left you and you didn’t see it coming

Now, I live without regret

and I have new friends that you won’t be able send away

I am thankful and grateful that I put my kids first

and me second

and kicked my baggage to the curb
