Abuse

A Poem by Matthew Kult

Abuse 

By 

Jayden DeVoir

I love you.
But I only feel pain.
Scars left black and blue.
I am your property to detain

Long ago, I was a free spirit.
Desired to be in your arms.
Now, I fear it.
Took off all your masks and charms.

I WANT TO BE! A bird in the sky
Spreading my wings and fly!
The Clouds will become my new home.
Forever ME, free to soar and roam!

I WANT TO BE! A cat on the run
Out in the sun, living life full of fun!
The streets will become my new home.
Forever ME, free on all four and roam!

Live in shame.
A shell of what I wanted to be.
I'm your cause, your blame.
Hiding away, scared to truly see.

I love you
But scars are all I have to gain
From beatings that leave me black and blue.
Punishing me with all your disdain.

I WANT TO BE! A bird in the sky
Spreading my wings and fly!
The clouds will become my new home.
Forever ME, free to soar and roam!

I WANT TO BE! A cat on the run
Put in the sun, living life full of fun!
The streets will be my new home.
Forever ME, free on all four and roam!

All I can do is wait and cry,
For the day you go too far and I die.

Author's Note

Matthew Kult
Something deeply personal to me. As an outsider looking in, I am not sure I could really touch the pure emotions. I only hope I have done this piece some justice. So please tear it up, rip it apart, let me know how you feel

With Love,

Jayden

There is something about a battered woman which evokes a fire in me....you touched upon the subject pretty well, but you told half the story,as there is always a chance of vengeance on that puny little man. I tend to write of such matters from the avengers point of view. Still, effective and filled with emo.

Well, Jay, I feel sad. The emotions flowing from the poem made my heart breaks. I feel deep sympathy for such emotional prisoner.

I really like the flow and high jumps the poem takes and showing how one drowns in this s**t. What a penmenship done! I must appreciate it.
You did a great justice to it☺

Profoundly tragic and intensely ominous.
Neither subject matter nor poem will not be easily forgotten.
A stunning creation!

Thank you for the read. Much appreciated

Your erotic work seems to inspire in you more inventive use of language. But the honesty of this piece reminds me of the emotions that grunge music from the nineties brings up. A feeling of loss, and a confidence of survival.

The use of "I WANT TO BE" is poignant and helps drive each pivotal point home. I would work on strengthening the last two lines, drive it home, make it more raw.

My pleasure!
A beautiful yet deeply sad poem which accounts for some poor victim.
I feel the emotional and physical pain this person must have endured.
Yes a free spirit is heaps better than a victim of abuse.
I know I've been there.
Great writing.😢

Wow put a deep poetic for that really speaks. You some don't get the chance to span and see. They live that life crying in seconds to see. I saw this as a child and I can never forget the day. I think was 12 the day I faced my Dad after my head was slammed in a building for buying a motorcycle didn't run. I was told to take it back. He hit me that day but I broke free and hit him back and took off running. I remember I ran so hard and stayed in my uncles barn that whole night. You did great and I truly loved reading:)
