He Said He Loved You……

He said he loved you
His being was an antonym
Everything he did
Was opposite his actions
Scattered everywhere
Like a jigsaw puzzle
Amiss like his kiss
You could make him a dot (.)
and make it stop.
 
You chose an ellipsis
Perhaps to later fill in the gaps
With a heroic metaphor but
All he will ever be
Is a figure of speech
Maybe a punctuation mark
A comma or a semicolon
An exclamation of wonder
But rather a dot (.)
That would put an end to it.
A FULL STOP.
 
Words are my toys
RIP Karabo

This poem was inspired by Karabo’s story and all the women who endure abuse and keep on applying a comma where a full stop is deserved.
May you gather enough courage to put a stop to it….
Not all men are trash. We teach people how to treat us; when they show you who they are, believe them the first time.
