perfect victim

by s.
(Nh)

I never had to ask myself, I was free of blame.
But now I can't help but ask, "what can I do so it doesn't happen again?".

A sad excuse for an empowered woman, losing what I've always believed.
I try to convince myself I'm not a victim,
But what else could I be?

You raised your hands and broke my heart,
Without even leaving a bruise.
Do I stand by what I say? Or do I give up you?
