Broken In

I saw you in that moment

The real you, the sick part, unmasked.

And I knew,

Knew of your weakness

And of your fear.

Our family dog, cringing as you raised your hand to hit her,

Cowered beneath your height.

And my heart broke then and there

For what I saw in her eyes

For not being able to stop you

For the man I no longer saw in you.

None of us would ever be the same.

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Prompt: cringe
