She listened well, very well.
When he was drunk, she could
put him back on track. He was
so full of himself (aka her) that
one day when he stepped on her
she stuck to the bottom of his
shoe. He saw her in his d.t.’s
and never knew she was there
so close, just squished, still out of
sight, carried through life on the bottom
of his smelly old shoe. It’s called
trauma bonding. Avoid it if you can.
