Domestic Violence - Poem by julie mcginnis

pages turn,
as my lover rages,

empty places without traces
a fist embraces, my body and soul.

blood fills my veins, as thunder rains,
behind closed shades.

deep inside i fade, hiding in the shade,
believing im unafraid.

morning awakens, as he gains control
evening sleeps with brusess and pain,

a silence within, embraces your fear
containning tears, of unworthiness.

as you awaken, never fully recovered.
and then die without ever really knowing,

then comes the falling dove.
