Cleaning Your Room For The Very Last Time - Poem by Daya Nandan

I am cleaning your room for the very last time,
For I am tired of each of your degrading and abusive crime,
You treat me like I am shit when I am trying my best,
You hate me so much when I help you more than the rest,

You bite me, throw objects at me to bring me such pain,
Expecting me to take it all and one day accept marriage as a chain,
I am sorry to say this I simply cannot for this reason,
To be in this abusive relationship for all of my life’s season,

I simply cannot be your toy to torture and throw around,
So I am changing my fate before I am legally bound,
I understand that for you I can never be your first choice,
And I know that when I am gone, you will never miss my voice,

So I am leaving you for I cannot take being abused no more,
Before my stress turns into a mental illness, I shall walk out the door,
I wish you the best of luck to find a man that accepts you,
I hope you change your ways and find a love that is true,

I am leaving this abusive relationship before it is too late,
Before i one day hurt you with all my bottled anger and hate,
I am doing this because I love you, I don’t want to commit a crime,
And so I am writing you this as I clean your room for the last time.
