Your Darling Husband

Your Darling Husband

A Poem by ThoseThreeWords

This is from a true event that occurred in the past to a very close friend of mine.

By now you've probably found this note,
By now I'm covered in a dirt coat,
You were to busy working to care,
You didn't know
What went on up there.

Well let me tell you

Tell you everything that happened.

Let me tell you how he watched me close,

Let me tell you about the hose,
Let me tell you about all the bones
That were broken under his hands.

I bet you thought this was it,

But there's so much more to it,
If you listened
Just even for a second
You would have paid more attention,
You'd have saw me stiffen.

Stiffen when his hands held me to close,

Touched me the most.

Let me tell you about the belt,

About all the welts
They covered my thighs,
While you bought all his lies.

Let me tell you about the drinks,

The ones that made him not think.

Let me tell you about the touching,

His hands covering everything.

You didn;t see any of this,

Did you mom?
Are you that naive?
Or did you just not want to believe,
That your little girl could be hurt so bad,
By the only one who was supposed to love her,
Help her,
Take care of her.

It was too for you to do anything,

By the time you found out,
My heart was ripped out.

You couldn't stop him from holding me down,

You couldn't stop him
From firing a round.

It's my fault
I never should have screamed,
I couldn't help it,
The pain was so bad,
As he shoved in and out.

Now that you found the note

I hope you don't cry.
Not your fault, that all you did was deny.

Author's Note

This was hard for me to write but it was a story that needed to be told. People need to be more aware of child abuse and should try to stop it.

Your words made me cry, I went through something close to this, other than the death part obviously, and many times i have tried to write to my mother about her refusing to see what was going on, but never have the words came out correct, so thanks. :) Amazing.

compelling read, sad and heart wrenching, especially for a mother like myself, I can't imagine the pain this child felt. wonderful work.

I've always loved this poem... But it makes me want to cry and beat the s**t out of someone in anger at the same time. I have seen abuse among friends - not just friendly taps or wrestling or fooling around but actual abuse, and other kids just around the country weather it be on television or in my town.

Well written, and a story that must be told, yes. Good job.

I love writing almost as much as I love music. I write poetry and once in a while a short story or fanfic. I like reading sad poems, mostly about heartbreak and stuff like that. So that's about it, ch.. more..
