Verbal abuse

Lesson Learned

It's a hard lesson to learn, 

What you think....
Everything you feel.
Doesn't matter one bit.
To someone who says,
You mean the world to them. 
When you'd move mountains for them, 
If you could.
Everything you do,
Everything you say,
Every move you make,
Is made with them,
And their feelings in mind.
Then their words sting like whips.
The intent is hard to miss.
Cutting like knives across your heart.
Carving the pain into your soul.
Leaving you scarred.
Believing you're not good enough,
It's too much to hope for to be happy.
It's too much to wish that you'd be loved. 
Fully and unconditionally accepted.
Wishing to be treasured.
That your heart would be held With care.
That you'd find a love,
Whose words are chosen wisely, 
Makes promises they keep. 
And whose love would soothe your wounded soul. 
So you stay here in silence,
Too wounded to move.
Too damaged to cry.
Afraid to speak...
You know what he'll say.
Too scared to leave.
No one would believe anyway....

You treat your wife like a dog

You called your wife a bitch in front of your son.
That was something that you shouldn't have done.
I've seen your wife and she's pretty hot.
You should appreciate what you've got.
I can probably never get a lady like your wife.
You're extremely lucky to have her in your life.
Your wife is beautiful and you were damn lucky to get her.
You may wind up losing her if you don't treat her better.
