    it would be easier if
    she had hit me
    to explain the
    coldness
    criticism
    dictation
    moodiness
    meanness
    it would be easier if
    she had hit me
    to explain the
    anger
    hatred
    refusal
    non-support
    controlling
    skin shows bruises but
    spirit does not
    body yields blood but
    soul only cries
    broken bones prove but
    not shattered hope
    words as
    fists and knives
    but lack of them
    can mock your life
    escaped with my damage
    all on the inside

    beautiful and so painful. this should be a wake up call to all. we need to watch what we say and how we speak to others. it may cause them pain that we can't even begin to imagine. thanks for the eye opener.

    This a profound insight. For some only pain feels real.

    the woes of psychological / emotional battery & abuse
    inflicts the deepest of invisible wounds...the kind that
    take a lifetime to work through........

    sticks&stones...whatever..

    words do hurt...

    well felt the pain of the fist
    and the crack of da heart
    u see da marks of abuse
    yet u can't see the pain and
    how it was a struggle but
    as days become longer one's mark vanish
    and the pain heal by faith what's broken
    is mend my heart goes out to u
    just lean on me !
    feeling u deeply
