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

This is a beautiful poem, with real and true emotion and pain that spills out onto the page. I understand that it is a personal piece and you may not want to change it, but sometimes less is more when it comes to exclamation marks. The words are powerful in their own right.

This really is raw, deep and powerful sincere and heartfelt. It touches the core of your heart and soul. And makes you feel angry and sad and hurt for you. Beautifully expressed. An open heart is always the first thing to get hurt. But also the first thing to be shared and given with honesty and openness. Thank you for sharing your heart with u all. Hugs.

There is great raising spirit in between this darkness. You said clearly what you wanna be and what you want to feel. You don't want be anymore victim . That's very hard way to go. Your emotions it's feels real like peson who was almost there. You have goo sensitivity and empathy .

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

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.

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.

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.

My greatest sin is playing pretend. Acting as if a monster doesn't live within. And surely some I offend But allow me a chat. To show you what I feel It is madness not under a hat. As everything.. more..
