' Abusive Kind Of Love' Poem by Linda Winchell

' Abusive Kind Of Love'

Rating: 2.9

You tell me that you love me
then you slap me to the ground.
You said until death do we part
your words now, are so profound.

You've pulled my hair, slapped my face
tare the best clothing off of me.
While I stand in wonder of what you're doing
in my heart I'm in love you see.

I would not want you as my best friend
wouldn't go out of my way to make that friend of you.
Even in this toxic love you claimed we had
In my heart I'm still in love with you.

Unfortunately there are many women who have the same story to tell. Way too many. So sad and a good time to move on. I know you have and thank goodness! '10! ' Warm Wishes, Marilyn

This is so true in so many many women today, unfortantly. This is a good write and describes too many women and children affected by this kind of dysfunctional love... Very good.! ! Bonnie

Honestly poignant poem, it may help others to know they are not alone if they're in an abusive relationship. Good to express and get it out there. Thank you for sharing.

This is what is known as a 'toxic kind of relationship'... but what I had to comment on was how the remarks made by Chuck Petz made me howl with laughter: (1/19/2009 5: 36: 00 AM) 'Has to be told. I thought I was in love like that once, but I hit myself in the head with a rubber mallet and it went away.' Now that's funny! ... but your poem was sad.
