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.

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.

Thank you for taking the time.

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.

Ah! I just cannot explain how touched I'm with your words words here! Each word seems like the word of those women speaking their hearts out in Silent sobs, around me hiding all the annoyance and torcher caused to them, in a mere better cover of the phrase '*sobs* ...But I still love You'.

I've often seen women, in such tough conditions,dying to even inhale the fresh air flowing outside, but there conditions are worse than the birds, who can atleast breath and fly freely!
To have everything in life, except love & freedom, is the most unfortunate phase on can ever see.What good are those materialistic stuffs if the life afteall if it feels more than a cage, a cage, which is ruled by the person, who a women once mistook to be a lover, but *sigh* he turned out to be more than just a brutal, inhumane, rude master almost forever! :(

I loved the emotional flow, the eloquence, and the simplicity of this piece.As a human, it's pathetic to see women being abused, but then...Sometimes we can only see, feel, be quiet, and pray this annoyance ends soon!


Thankyou for sharing this beautiful poem. :)Nicely crafted!

*Pat on back*

You're most welcome :)
I've seen women in this situation. There seems to be some love mechanism inside them that won't turn off when it is clear that there is no longer any love to be found. "But I love him" sounds so wrong to anyone outside the relationship.

In any case, it happens too often and it is sad. Too sad to see.

Nicely done.

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..
