Behind The Scenes Of Abuse - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Total disregard for another person's life left hanging in
the balance, not reaching out to take care of them, always
putting himself first.

Acting like a selfish child, not ever thinking of anyone
else, yet saying that he cares, never showing it at all
for the one he claims to love.

A sin in the making, letting his love die because she
can't help herself right now, having always taken care
of his every need, now not responding in kind to her.

An atrocious way to show his love or in this case, the
total lack of it, writing down details to leave behind,
she's letting everyone know the truth of what's been
going on behind the scenes when a loved one has dementia.
