**TW** DOMESTIC VIOLENCE REFERENCES

Bong rips,

Suicide grips.

Smoke and haze,

Turns out I’m in a daze.

Life,

It cuts you like a fucking knife.

Love,

Feels just like a glove.

Bless,

Maybe my life’s not a mess?

Stress going down,

Time to drive to fucking town.

Going to the store,

Why’d you call me a god damn whore?

Control,

Looks like hes on a roll.

Narcissists,

They always fuck you with those twists.

Pain,

Fist coming down harder than rain.

But he loves me!

So you say,

Why then does he treat you this way?

It wont happen again,

So he says.

I’m so sorry,

So he says.

It will happen again.

Make no mistake,

Next time you will fucking break.

Gaslighting,

Now fighting.

Down those stairs,

He throws you hard,

Next time you’ll hit the fucking yard.

Abusive relationships will destroy,

He will play you like a fucking toy.

The problem is not you.

If the problem is not you,

Then who?

The abuser is who,

I promise the problem was never you.
