Relationship Violence Story From Senia1
He told me he loved me:
I will always remember the day he said "I love you." It felt like my world had become better. We were dating on and off for almost 3 months. And after I would break up with him he would beg me to come back, and I would. After a while he became obsessive, constantly calling me on the phone and showing up at my house.
One day we started arguing because I was talking to another guy. He called me names that hurt me so bad, and told me that I would never find no one like him, that he hoped I would end up with AIDS, and that he would kill me and any guy around me. But those were only the words. I didn't expect what came after.
We were arguing for 9 hours, when he started putting his hands on me. I have been abused as a child before and I felt so helpless. I prayed to God that I would survive that night. I couldn't get free from his grip and I was walking around with bruises all over my body reminding me of him. It hurt so bad to know that the man that I once loved had become a monster.
I will never forget that day, when all the things I went through flashed before my eyes once again. I tried to move on and forget, but every time I walk the streets I feel so scared. Each night I dream about what he did to me that night. He has left another scar on my mind and heart.Note from Darlene:
