REALIZE

When the capillaries have been bursted in your eyes so many times that they’re permanently black…

When you flinch because a man moves too fast in your personal opinion, that it feels like fight or flight…

When you rub your tongue across false teeth or missing teeth that you didn’t ask for…

When you can only breathe from one nostril…

When you lick your tongue across your mouth and feel the split in your lip that others can’t see…

When you wear your hair in certain way so that ppl don’t see the scars…

When you look over your shoulder hoping they’re not there or in your space…

When you regret being in the same space with this person…

When you begin to place blame on yourself for the things that have happened to you…

When you realize domestic violence is real…

When you stop listening to your “friends” telling you he’s a good dude and you should stay…

When you realize that his own mother doesn’t care about him knocking you unconscious…

When you realize victim blaming is real…

When you finally understand misogynoir…

When you finally realize that this person will kill you eventually…

When you finally get tired…

Hopefully, you’re still alive!
