Bonded To Abuse - Poem by Sue Jones

Bound inextricably
To pain

Reject me
Leave me
Hurt me

That is familiar
I know it

I chose you
Because
I knew you would treat me that way

It feels right
It is my lot in life

Do it again

At home with the pain

    Disturbing. But I know some women prefer to take the blows than leave the man.
    Simple in style it hits home a powerful message.
