Just One Time

He raised his voice

Just one time

When he raised his hand,

You hardly flinched

It’s as if his words already

Hit just like punches

So when the fists flew,

You noticed no difference

You made excuses and hid the truth

Hoping you could change him

But that wasn’t your job

You’re worth so much more

Than being someone’s tape and glue

You deserve feeling the warmth of the sun

And dancing in your underwear

You deserve a love that pours into you

Just as much as you pour into it

You deserve the gentle hand on your cheek

And deep rest through the night

He raised his hand

Just one time

And that one time

Did not stop there
