    Repost...

    I feel ya Rich...

    You say you love him unconditionally
    but do you put conditions on yourself

    you'll do anything for him
    but do you forget about the things
    you need to do for your own good

    you're staying together for the kids
    but the kids seem to see you more apart

    you do all the things that
    you think will make him happy
    but happy is as happy does
    and he does not know it

    now you are lost in the unknowing
    falling deeper inside an abyss
    a place you think is happiness

    your eyes are open
    but closed real tight
    because you can not see
    the conditions
    of your
    unconditional love

    THE CONDITIONS:

    If you go out
    you have to listen to
    him rant and shout

    You FAT, UGLY, BLACK, ***** HOE
    who you been ph**king
    I ought to bust you in your muthaph**king nose!

    But you think this is love
    it feels right
    see girl he loves me
    he made love to me last night

    you cover up your black eyes
    but makeup and glasses
    can't hide tears you've cried

    you cover you body in long sleeves
    and from frequent practice
    you've learned to stop the nose bleeds

    he held your neck in one hand
    and in the other a knife
    see the conditions you've put on your life

    The conditions of your unconditional love.

    broken body
    bent over like a neglected tree
    in need of water

    broken soul
    so intertwined with his
    no longer know yours

    broken mind
    confused, shattered
    and under his control.


    Thandiwe

    if not phyisically, the death of a soul and spirit...

    i've seen it too many times in my family and friends. and one time is too many, however, the number is larger than that...

    Too many...

    instances of "til death do us part"...

    i've heard thes women say they stay in it for the children
    but yet what they children do is repeat the cycle...
    that **** starts to look normal to them and this is what "love" is to them.

    I have a close relative who can't seem to find the strength to leave. when she picks herself up, she goes back to thinking that no one else wants her and that she is weak, that she needs this man, a man who has threatened her life, with both gun and knife...

    all the while her mother who was also a domestic abuse victim and well as emotional in other marriages, tells her this is a good man...

    I don't want to share this feeling...

    It's unfortunate that we have to share this pain...

    So Heartbreaking

    This piece is so heartbreaking. I had a friend who stayed with her husband through all the beatings and mental abuse. When she finally got the courage to leave, he killed her and now her children have no mother or father. Life can be so cruel and painful.
    I don't judge, but I have such difficulty in understanding how someone can equate the cruelty of physical and mental abuse with love. :confused: My heart weeps for those who live their lives in those situations and the children that view it and carry it into their future relationships. Such saddness.:(
