He wanted so badly to be the straw that broke her.
He wanted to see the agony creep across her face as
She clocked that she could never escape him.
But instead she stood straighter.
She held her head high in the air.
And spoke not to him, but around him.
"I am the strength of my own power.
I am the source of my own love. I am whole.
I am not a part of you or anyone.
I am a woman; blood, sweat and emotion,
And I will tear through your influence like the razor blade promises you cut me with."
He was speechless.
She was afraid no more.
