The monster that I love


I've known this man to be kind and caring but somehow he became a monster. Tearing my life apart, as if he'd almost lost his heart. He used to be subtle with each word he said yet now his words slice me inside, they clothe me in self hatred. His touch used to make me warm and happy yet now it scares me, I'm scared of the man I love and cherish. How can I be in love with a monster? I still feel the pain but I don't have the answer... I suppose I'm a fool to love you, to accept that I deserve any of the abuse. I'm not such a mindless girl. I know that I should not have to take this at all! Standing tall, I am not scared of you! I can't believe I ever loved such a cruel person, such a heartless fool! Why did I fall for a monster? Why did I fall for you?

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
