she took advantage
of his helping hands
and nourished
the selfishness
the madness
inside her
to
unattainability.

he stayed,
longer than he should have
and so often
took the fall
for her aggressiveness.

bound by duty
and the image of hope
he flogged himself
day and night
to please her.

it never mattered.

in the end
he took a tumble
and limped away
battered and broken
while she kept
her selfish ways
looking for
another victim.
