Domestic Abuse (C)8-12-07

Rating: 5.0

Thrown to the floor punched, slapped, and bruised
Give me all your stuff is another way to be abused
Being verbally raped with the words that will never be forgiven
Smacked in the face so much you just want to stop livin'
Talked to like a lowly child and to him or her you serve
You wish you could just break away this is not what you deserve
You think the days of slavery is over but you're living it today
Then when they're down, they try to kiss you but you push away
And that was a bad move now you're about to get a beaten
Now it's like your dreams of a great marriage has been devoured and eaten

He talks to you very unkindly, she laughs at you in your face

This poem is an eye-opener and sends out a powerful message...The 911 reminder is a fitting finale to a great piece...10++ from me Corey

Loving this 911 advice and a fitting termination to the poem...wish I had thought of that in my poem 'Rape & Revenge'

Very powerfully written. This should make us aware of what sometimes really goes on behind closed doors. Keep writing. <3
