Abuse

By 1st January 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

Long before the hurt dug in, the build up had begun,
The pointless comments the little quips, that ended all the fun,
Anger filled sinew released in a slap, too late now on its way,
It can’t be retracted once its sent, all manliness slips away,

A look of horror and disbelief, that violent play will bring,
An angry red welt on a loved one’s face, “sorry” won’t fix a thing,
The sweat, the tears, strain all apparent, the hair all torn apart,
Questions the words “I love you”, engraving defeat in the heart
