The Black Eye Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

The Black Eye

Rating: 5.0

Yr lips are redder than the sky at dusk
But yr eyes are blacker than the sea
I'll love you always
Though, you keep breaking my heart
After our last fight, I wonder if I should leave
The black eye you gave me could be blacker
But I finally I found a blend of cosmetics to cover it
You want to apologise, but I want you to get help
Realising I can't take it anymore
I am sorry, I got to go
As it's the only way it will stop
I'll go somewhere that you won't find me
And have someone to jerk around
Maybe then, you'll get help

Dear LeeAnn, any man who hits a lady is not a real man. You are a caring woman who does not deserve such treatment. You will find a man who respects you and cares about you so have courage to move on no matter how difficult.

I hope and pray that this heartrending poem is just a figment of one's imagination. No woman should be subjected to any abuse or domestic violence. Otherwise, such act must be dealt with by law.

Tough time don't last but tough people do. You are courageous enough to handle it in your own way. I suppose its a your poetic imagination.
