BATTERED WIFE

BATTERED WIFE

A Story by CAPOLAVORO
"

This is from a thought of a battered wife. I want to be her voice.

"
I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You punch me in the face
The ring you just misplace
No love in your embrace
Release me I need space

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You are alcoholic
Your stares are demonic
Your love has no logic
You are so psychotic

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You forced me to have sex
You don't give a respect
D*mn! all of these effects
Now all my soul objects

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

Author's Note

CAPOLAVORO
This is a thought of a battered wife. I want everyone to see the unending cycle of why some women even if being physically abused by their husband, they still stay. There is already a psychological dependency happening in here. Sad reality.

Battered Woman Syndrome is so screwed up. The woman will say "He said sorry and he'll never hit me again" and stuff like that. I understand in most ways how Women can sometimes get caught up in abusive relationships. Plus the guy will often threaten the woman to scare her into leaving.

A sad poem that is well-written and this is something that needs to be expressed. Maybe as a guy I can never completely comprehend the whole concept. I've never raised a finger against my girlfriends and I don't know why other guys would.

Sorry, I seem to be rambling a bit. Good job, at least you expressed this woman's situation yourself. You seem to be a caring young woman that might go out of her way to help people. :)

Domestic violence is the dehumanizing acts perpetuated by sickened men. Women should stand against it! Break the cycle of violence!

I like your poem, but when I read your author's note, I have to honestly say that you have NOT shown us WHY the battered woman stays (in my opinion). I think it's good the way you show us her inability to go, her being stuck, her scraping for some reason which is never actually expressed here . . . all this is realistic & compelling . . . but it just doesn't help us know WHY she stays. I like a straightforward message like this & it's important to show us the empathy you want to express for such trapped people . . . Fondly, Margie

This is the real tragedy. They want to stay.
Hope things work out for the best.
Sadly it wont.

Tragically accurate. I've known far too many women in similar positions. They're treated horribly and abused, yet they can't escape, for one reason or another. The repetition in this story/poem is used to very good effect. Very potent.

Words that packed a real punch.
This line was the stand out line, and said it all for me - Your stares are demonic.

A hard hitting, sad, well written poem.

Ohh.. no way. I will never be like this woman. :p hehe Thank you so much for reading.
A very confident stance against violence on women. This is a grave bitter reality all over the world. If not physical, emotional. if not emotional, sexual. Your word consists some strong message to convey. Well done!

I worked with a guy whose wife was twice his size and she beat him. he was too embarrassed to speak out. He is separated from her now but he was broken by the experience. Sadly, it does occur on both sides of the marital join.
Good piece.
