Checkmate

Form: Blank Verse

I saw you smile that day you first hit me
Your eyes that filled with hate against the vow
We made in sacred faith; the promise gone
Replaced by black and blue across my skin
And yet you called it love, your right to cause
Such harm abusing trust until trust died
And though my heart was charred by tears and fear
I found the strength to say no more and turn
Away from you and walk into my life
My life without your punches, kicks and hate
Revenge is sweet they say, and so it is
My happiness now says it all to you
