Abusive - Poem by R.M. Spears

The unheard voices,
of all your hurt and pain,
Makes life hard to wake up,
and do it all again.

The tears of anguish,
the fire burning inside.
Betrayed yet again,
all you can do is hide.

Can't trust the words you say.
or bare to see your face.
The bruises you left behind,
shows how you're a disgrace

The power is in walking away,
and never looking back.
Not giving a single inch,
and never call back!

Topic(s) of this poem: abuse, courage, survival

Form: Dramatic Monologue

    The anguish of deplorable state of mind, well depicted in the poem. It's a well articulated piece of poetry insightfully penned with good rhyme scheme. A lovely poem written with conviction. Thanks for sharing Spears. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
