I Don'T Anymore - Poem by Patricia A. Banks

What happened to us, you and me? You were my closest friend once.
You were my knight in shining armor. It was to you I gave all I had to
Give, my heart, my soul, my body. Why did you change and try to change me in the process?
When did our love turn to hate? when did we abandon our friendship and walking side-by-side facing lifes battles together, to facing each other as enemies on a battle ground of our own making, and desiring to see each other bleed and hurt?
When did "I do, "become" I don't anymore?" When did I cease being your wife, lover, and best friend and become an object to the beaten and abused both mentally and physically?
When did you decide you hated me wo much that you had to cheat on me, trade my arms for those of another womans? Was it when I carried your child, or were you always that way and I just did not see?
Whatever the answers may be to the questions that once plagued me does not really matter anymore. For you see our relationship is nothing more than a bitter memory now, for much time has past and my bruised and battered heart is no longer within your abusive, and very unworthy grasp...
