Gaslighting

She came to me, I hoped for love
I felt safe in her arms 
The way she smiled 
The way she spoke 
I fell for all her charms 

But slowly things began to change 
The change not for the good 
Nothing was her 
Twas always me 
I felt misunderstood 

She’d isolate my point of view 
Then blame it on my brain 
“You just can’t have 
A point of view 
Remember you’re insane”

I had to soak up all the wrongs 
Then never speak my mind 
Whilst she was free 
To laugh at me 
Her nastiness unkind 

I broke away and let her go 
But know she’s still around 
She bides her time 
Quite patiently 
The wolf that likes to hound
