    Leave
    with the first raised hand
    so that it's force to hold it's bowing head
    with shame
    leave
    when the first dish sails past your face
    with such effortless grace
    powered by an inner hate
    that you never acknowledged
    you're to blame
    for a lifetime of pain
    and abuse
    because a stand you refused to take
    instead you endure breaks
    and sprains
    black and blue days
    with little reward
    or love
    for your ignorant patience
    and excuse making
    leave
    when loved ones ask
    if everything is cool
    and
    why you're suddenly so clumsy
    because
    the door is always there
    it may not be open
    but it's always there
    when you decide to dust off your dignity
    and put it back in your pocket
    and walk away from hell
    leaving it to burn alone

    Leaving can be difficult, sometimes even hell can be comfortable if it's too foggy to see past the flames. Yet when all is clear, and you can see, exit, post haste. I liked the way you spoke the truth here, write some more poet!!!

    Thanks Prizefighter16, I've also known a few women that have had this problem and it's sad because they find every excuse to stay. Even some guys have girls that love to swing on them, and they should leave too. I've also been in that situation where a woman has swung on me (luckily she didn't know how to fight), and I stayed longer than I should have. No punches ever connected...but that's not the point. If they swing on you, they are very close to stabbing you too. Much Love

    Speaking with truth...
    The door can become our friend or enemy...and surely we have them that swings "both ways" ...enter~exit
    wonderful, mind blowing piece...thanks for droping off the key.
