A letter request written for someone that was in a abusive relationship and wanted to leave a letter behind after she left him...
You have hit me, for the last time,
You have broken my spirit, for the last time,
You have said bad things to me, for the last time,
You have spit on me, for the last time,
You have shouted at me, for the last time,
You have cursed me, for the last time,
I have broken all these arrows of pain that you have shoved in chest, for the last time
I will not mistaken your broken words and promises that you will not hurt me again, for the last time
My fist and my will to live are my shield and my sword against you and you will hurt me no more, for the last time
For you see, I am rising up from my knees now and I can finally see your face through my swollens eyes
So I say to you, everything you think you have done to break me, you have already done to break yourself.
Look at my hands because they are reaching for the door that leads me away from you.
I don't need to take anything with me because my life is all that I need to start over
So remember, after I leave you here and now, don't bother to reach for me, because I will not reach back for you like I've done so many times before.
Don't say I love you to me any more, because I know now more than ever you don't treat people that you love this way...
My hands are silent, and my heart and my lips will never speak your name again, this I swear to you.
Dear Readers - She wanted this letter posted so that others will find the courage to leave an abusive person.
