I’ll treat you better.

“If you don’t leave,”
he whispered,
“I’ll treat you better.”
In fact, he promised,
He wanted to.
He said.

“I don’t know why
it’s been so hard
to like you.

Dealing with your criticisms
And incessant need
For more

Makes me hate you.
Loving you
is frustrating.

But it can’t be
to act like I care
While slamming your face

Into everything you
do wrong.

Please don’t cringe
From my words.
I can love you

Through my resentment.
If I can remind

You’re wrong.

I’ll apologize.

I’ll treat you better.

If you deserve it more than before.”
