I Love Him To Death

by B. D. Faw

I know that it hurts to be deeply in Love.
The pain comes in spurts with a slap or a shove.
He can't really help it, He gets really MAD!
I must blame myself, it's because I've been bad.
I get so confused- -I'm not sure what I've done,
'cause I'm battered and bruised, but at least not ALONE!
But, enough is enough. I can't take any more!
of his "Physical Love"... and my blood on the floor.
So, at last I believe, (as I bleed in my bed),
and I know I would leave, if I only weren't dead.
