Trigger Warning – Sensitive Subject Matter
I know you were afraid to get involved,
I know you heard everything he did to me,
and I know you just tried to forget about it.
I don’t blame you for not intervening,
you knew there was no reasoning with him,
and he’d hurt me more if you did.
I don’t blame you for not trying to talk to me about it,
it’s a sensitive issue to bring up,
and the one neighbour who did couldn’t make me leave.
I don’t blame you for sitting back while it happened,
it’s still spoken about in hushed terms now,
and everyone is scared to get involved.
I blame him,
I only blame him,
and I will only ever blame him.
There was nothing we could do,
I never saw sense while I was in it,
and we couldn’t take him on if I did.
