(I wrote this on the 2nd of March 2016. Dealing with and trying to get out of an emotionally abusive-toxic relationship.) Day 1: You are still in love, so you beg him not to leave. You bleed, you claw and your eyes sting with salt. He stays. You have no piece of yourself left.
With life’s each passing test I will become better and not bitter. Tougher but not colder.
