Who is wise? He that learns from everyone. Who is powerful? He that governs his passions. Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.
-Benjamin Franklin

I trusted you,
Though my heart was whispering no.
I found you,
When you were too lost to comprehend.
I went along with what you wanted,
Even though you were controlling me,
Like a puppet on strings.
I believed you,
When you swore you’d never hurt me again.
But you did, over and over.
Every slap was a cry out for help.
Every harsh word,
Every broken promise,
Just another wasted moment with you.
I trusted you,
Though my heart was whispering no.
