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

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.

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.😢

Please don't,it's a given.
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:)

Gee
I thought only dogs would endure constant abuse but still remain faithful, loyal to the abuser. This tells me differently.
A well written but very sad piece Matthew

Unfortunately some women won't leave. Its a sad reality.

Matthew
The beatings kill the love. There can be no love with violence. Then the body becomes a cage and the spirit just wants to roam free. Yes, you did it justice!

I love this poem. it shows deep emotion that not alot of people can write through. Great job. I really enjoyed this piece. I shows sadness, put in the poem, there was a glimpse of hope. I like how you ended the poem. It shows that Things may not be as you think they are. I really enjoyed this.

This is deep. Anyone who's been in this position can relate to it. Wanting to be free but knowing in this situation, death may be the only wait out.
