Poem: An Abusive Relationship

My boyfriend told me that 
In order to boil a frog, 
Put it in a pot of cold water, 
And slowly make it hotter, 
Escalate the heat 
Until the frog is beat, 
Tricked into believing it’s safety
While it’s slowly being killed. 

Well, babe, 
Doesn’t that sound familiar? 
An ode to what I fear: 
An abusive relationship.

    1. Thanks Thomas;
      It was a realization that struck me the other day. Probably could’ve been better articulated, but I wanted to get it out before I forgot it.
