A year of abuse by one I had thought incapable.
I’d been respected as a leader of worth,
but the mistreatment left me broken,
feeling worthless.
All I had built destroyed.

I changed.
Became a different person,
diagnosed with borderline (BPD).
Stigmatized like never before.
Thought badly of.
Lost friends.

Today I live with agonizing moods that often come daily,
making me look for ways to die.

And the person who caused all this?
He’s shown no remorse.
Will not admit the wrong he’s done.
When offered forgiveness did not think it was needed.

When I describe my pain,
He does not show compassion,
Only concern for his reputation.
