He’s standing in front of my face.
Looking at me straight in the eye with anger and hate
after having punched a wall saying these words to me
“next time i’ll punch your face”.
And i wonder what happened to a man who promised to love & take care of me.
i’m lost for words shocked by what just happened.
He takes a seat & looks somehow sorry
he takes me by the hand and holds me close saying
“i love you thabile”
