Hit and miss

A Poem by Lykos

All happy until we walk through the door,
Door closes and pushes me to the floor
Roaring and again my body you insult
A blow to the head when i interrupt.

Saying why I should feel so lucky,
“No one will ever want you honey”.
My confidence you have destroyed,
And doing this to me you cruelly enjoyed.

Yes go ahead and you pick up that knife
You know you love the power over my life
You swipe and slash at my body and face
You think it's your right to put me in my place.

You walk out and leave me alone,
To used to being forgiven, you have grown.
This time I have reached my breaking point,
My body and soul you'll no longer exploit.

Now here comes the lovely twists
In my heart a blade now sits
Your fingerprints on the knife hilt
In jail, you can try and live with the guilt.

Wow, this is so painful and clearly depicts an abusive relationship in which the woman used cutting words to break down the spirit of the man by continually shaming and repeatedly destroying his confidence and ego.. why wield the power of words to do such ugly things? I do so love a comeback tbough and you artfully pen the win in the right corner.

This just speaks volumes and nothing I say can add on. Even any praise as your work speaks for you. Very well penned.
