You found me as a small ember whose fire was obliterated by the hate, abuse and lies of another. I warned you that I was wrecked, and I fought you as though I were fighting for my life.
In the middle of my harshest words of defense, you said, ‘I love you completely, and you love me completely, and that’s what fights for us against everything else’.
In the middle of shards of glass, debris, hateful words on torn pieces of paper, you silenced the world. You fought hate with love, and you showed a scorn, scarred human being that she could come out of from the dark and love again.
I don’t have to fight him anymore, because our love forgives everything he ever did. Our love proves that love does not end at the hand of an abuser, but it finds the last ember in the victim, and ignites it into a burning flame.
