A Case Of Domestic Violence

Rating: 5.0

Her beauty was beyond compare but her heart was full of despair,
she loved her husband and there was no other, but she never knew
he had a secret lover.To her he was the perfect man a father,
a friend and a village fan.They loved him because
he was was full of heart, but none of them
knew this marriage was falling apart. This beautiful
lady with eyes of blue with a love for her husband that was deep
and true, but the violence to her became so strong and she
could never understand what she had done wrong;
she had three children that she loved so dear
but her heart became weary and full of fear.
There was no prospects she had to get away
but she knew he would try to make
her stay. The lies, his love and the passion he gave,
was this to tempt her into an early grave,
so again she gave into all his charm thinking
that he would keep her from harm.
Then one summers day she caught him bang to rights and that
is what turned her days into nights.The day had come where
she had to let go of a man that she did not want to know.
The love for him was buried six foot deep and all she could call
him was a two timing creep.Her life now was at an end but she
was strong, and nothing would stop her taking that final bend.
Kid in a pram and two by her side, life was now going to be one
hell of a ride. To her life could be no worse and she never worried
about the strings of the purse, she was free from a tyrant that she
had loved for years who caused depression, heartache and
nightmare fears.
A life in silence cannot bring back love just do what I did pray
to him above.
