    Consider this
    Eternal; long lasting, helpless, scared
    Inferior, lack of hope
    Open up to a world
    Overlooked; unseen; ignored; unnoticed
    In fear of
    Your own demise
    Ending; termination, massacre
    Failure, completion
    Might as well
    Scream, cry
    Howl out a word so meaningless
    Worthless; useless; insignificant
    Not worth mentioning to his ears
    Now?
    What about then?
    When you beat her,
    Promising never to raise your hand again
    A lie again
    A fib; tall tale
    A story
    Lived; in existence
    Instead you
    Prohibit this body to be used
    Abused; injured; treated badly
    By a man of no value
    Worth, meaning
    He forces you
    To have sex,
    To disappear from family, friends
    Dreams, hopes, aspirations
    Leaving you
    Helpless, lonely, depressed
    Feelings of
    Humiliation; shame; embarrassment
    Showing all over your face
    Cant tell anyone because no one will understand
    And when you attempted to speak
    No one would listen
    Leaving you with a lack of
    Self worth, confidence,
    Happiness; joy,
    Havent seen you
    Dance, smile, and laugh

    He claims to
    Calling you beautiful,
    Sexy, smart, stunning, his Mona Lisa
    Yet he continues to
    Call you *****
    Stupid, ignorant, dumb
    Ugly, hideous, gruesome
    Treats you like an animal
    Refuses to look you in the eyes
    In fear of you catching him in another lie
    Or just embarrassment of his own doings

    When will these events stop?
    In the days when men no longer see their hand as a weapon
    To prove their manhood!
    More of a wimp,
    Scared of discovering the truth
    She doesnt need you; you need her
    Scared of losing
    So you beat her
    Allowing her to fear
    Leaving,
    Until one day, he awakes in the midst of his death
    To her journal, open
    Reading : Many beatings I have taken from a soul I once saw as a light illuminating truth and beauty. A love I once knew has now turned into a monster with no dignity. So many days he has come home from work, frustrated and angry. all I want to do is see him smile. Instead he slaps me across the face calling me a disgrace! Yet, I still love him

    It is then when a tear falls from his eyes
    One held in for so many years
    A little too late,
    For he feels a pain in his chest
    Slowly falling to his knees
    Blood dripping, he falls back
    Looks up to see this woman hes been beating for long
    His eyes close and a kiss placed on his cheek
    She walks away slowly, vowing to never speak
    In fear of losing what she has just regained; freedom!
