My Boyfriend Hits Me

Why my boyfriend hits me is a mystery.

I cook for him. I clean for him. Love him.

He shows no appreciation. Just hits.

I do not know how his mind thinks. Does it?

I am black and blue underneath my dress.

Tight jeans have been replaced with loose garments.

Makeup has been applied to arms and face.

I feel like I am a complete disgrace.

Why my boyfriend hits me is a mystery.

I want out but I am afraid of him.

I want him to stop. He won’t. He won’t!

I cry myself to sleep at night softly.

I don’t want him to hear me, then hit me.

Why my boyfriend hits me is a mystery.

I am suffering, but he does not care.

He only wants what he wants when he wants.

It is like I don’t exist; I’m not there.

Why my boyfriend hits me is a mystery.

I am invisible to him most days.

But once in a while he treats me right.

I live for those moments, when he is kind.

It makes everything worth it; he loves me.

Sometimes he says he’s sorry, sometimes not.

Why my boyfriend hits me is a mystery.
