Abuse

A Poem by SarahCortland
"

abusive relationship that ended

"

The bruises

The bluff

The cuts

Arent they enough?

 

Your anger

Your fear

I'm listenning

I can hear

 

Your shouting

I'm crying

Your smacking

I keep lying

 

I'm on floor

your hitting

I'm begging

Your spitting

 

Am I not woth it?

Are you more?

Pleading doesn't help?

A swinging door.

 

A gun

please help me 

a trigger pulled

blood for all to see

 

no funeral

no casket

no one to see

nothing but a basket

 

a girl

a life

one gone

but an end to stife

 

The bruises

The bluff

The cuts

Weren't they enough?

Interesting how you go back and forth between the abused and the abuser. I like that. Pretty sad ending of a life.

Wow. I am at a loss for words. This is very intense, yet very amazing.
