BATTERED WIFE

BATTERED WIFE

A Story by CAPOLAVORO
"

This is from a thought of a battered wife. I want to be her voice.

"
I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You punch me in the face
The ring you just misplace
No love in your embrace
Release me I need space

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You are alcoholic
Your stares are demonic
Your love has no logic
You are so psychotic

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

You forced me to have sex
You don't give a respect
D*mn! all of these effects
Now all my soul objects

I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you

Author's Note

CAPOLAVORO
This is a thought of a battered wife. I want everyone to see the unending cycle of why some women even if being physically abused by their husband, they still stay. There is already a psychological dependency happening in here. Sad reality.

Battered Woman Syndrome is so screwed up. The woman will say "He said sorry and he'll never hit me again" and stuff like that. I understand in most ways how Women can sometimes get caught up in abusive relationships. Plus the guy will often threaten the woman to scare her into leaving.

A sad poem that is well-written and this is something that needs to be expressed. Maybe as a guy I can never completely comprehend the whole concept. I've never raised a finger against my girlfriends and I don't know why other guys would.

Sorry, I seem to be rambling a bit. Good job, at least you expressed this woman's situation yourself. You seem to be a caring young woman that might go out of her way to help people. :)

This was quite the excellent ride of short rhymes laced with heady lines... Your style borders on lyrical, with the repeated phrases and ideas made bold with repeated ingestion... We all encounter hard realities in life, male and female... Hopefully the healthy choice can be made by all of us when faced with such tragedy... Emotionally penned...

Mhm... Your'e welcome...
it was catchy, it was sad and brutal. the repeating hook kept me as a reader invested and involved, that's tough to do. This is such a devastating issue, you did a good and respectful job presenting something that needs to be presented. : )

Yes, these kinds of feelings are quite normal in the absence of love. Thank you for your time. :)
My mother had three abusers.
"I do
You do?
Do you really do?
I doubt its true
But still I believe in you"
Many woman accept bad place. Hard to twist a heart that won't give up. Thank you my dear friend for sharing the excellent and realistic words.

Haha, well I loved your poem, I do you do...
It's not sad reality, pschology says if u loves some one and after time if he hates you or she hates you there i no chance of hatred from us it's just matter of increasing love by day.....stupid theory but a fact....
Well done you are true to humans....

This is indeed a sad reality and you have done a great effort to convey the message. I couldn't understand what your repetition stanza (the first 3 lines) meant but apart from that it's really well written.

I would say, not all women choose to stay in an unhealthy relationship like that but yes that happens. The country from which I am, there was recently a case here of the same issue where the wife was beaten so much that her collar bone broke and that too on her wedding night just because she refused to have sex.
These sad realities should really come out in the open and I applaud you for writing about this issue. 👍👍
