    ... blacken eyes,
    twisted arms and
    broken bones heal with time


    yet


    ... inside
    afterwords smolder
    in time-hidden from
    unsuspected eyes


    ... utterance
    pluck heart-strings
    though bruised "HOPE" keeps
    embracing with undying
    love-


    ... love
    not once given
    in return


    can anyone see/
    does anyone know


    ... the hurt
    the damage from
    venom spat?


    ... it’s vicious
    impact double-edged
    verbiage attack


    "don’t nobody want your ***... but me"


    ... rip through flesh
    soul-deep to the core


    ... inwords bleeding
    YOU’RE WORTHLESS!
    thoroughly collapsing self-esteem


    "your *** was nothing before you met me"


    ... sting
    eardrums and
    rattle psyche ‘til
    words ring true.


    can anyone see/
    does anyone know


    ... afterwords
    critical affects
    ‘cept we?





    dedicated to those silently abused

    LACK OF RESPECT
    FROM BOTH PARTIES
    AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
    IS NOT PRETTY THING
    AND HURTS ALL DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY

    Silently Abursed... but hopefully one will find enough courage to see that way of escape. No-one deserves to be mistreated Male or Female!!

    Coco...As a child who witnessed things like this and still loving a mother who's soul still is transparent to the lack of self-security due to this...I say that you summed domestic violence up in a scribe that is lovingly painful. Keep scribing indeed.

    afterwords can apply to many... men, women and children

    so we have to choose our words wisely when we engage in conversation


    Verb... I feel you on that soul-deep. this piece was inspired by a person close to me, who is now free.


    Thanks poet siblings for your visit and comments are appreciated :)
