    (Last year, I wrote this piece with a fellow male poet; and I thought I'd share it here....


    "Scarred No Longer...."

    MALE PART:

    Lacerations so0o0o0o deep

    she was consciously

    .suffocating.

    Hateful arguments

    thrown dishes
    slanderous sayings

    Conveying.
    the falsity of love

    ..its *********..!!

    a defaulted sentence

    A go to good bye

    Presently

    a heartless
    ( vocalized ) remembrance

    Broken battered
    sentimental female figurine

    .shattered.

    Posing
    ---frozen----
    afraid

    against

    bloodied W A L L S

    she

    -c
    --r
    ----a
    --w
    ------l
    ---e
    -----d

    panties [soaked soiled]

    teeth

    {{{ .loosened. }}}

    boxing barrages

    ~~BLASTED~~

    facially

    ---Fictitiously---

    His true colors

    bruised her limbs

    Highly defined
    knuckled tattoos

    no sympathy

    Scarred lover
    ??perplexed??

    A truce??

    Randomized

    bordering rape

    (.fvcking punk @ss ape.)
    rough illicit ----sex

    ::psychologically::
    destroying her self esteem

    ::emotionally::
    feeling cheap

    ::socially:: muted
    scarcely (.silenced.)

    ::mentally::
    distraught

    deliriously .upset

    Make up 2 break up??

    .A bouquet of flowered fisticuffs

    brutally
    brawling
    is
    al---w---a---y---s NEXT

    **sigh**

    Pathetic extremes
    seems
    fondness of the beast
    was her only protection

    Senseless punches..!!

    were domesticating
    .submissive. weapons

    Flesh severely injured
    she carelessly

    .accepted.

    these so-called

    Its that I love you so0o0 much baby

    Semi animalistic affectionate methods.

    Girlfriends were pissed
    :: advice ::

    BE a ******
    fvck it

    Get ***** started

    Burn his clothes
    break his tv
    torch his fvcking apartment

    Slash his tires
    fill his tank with sugar

    but she'd reluctantly disagree

    smiling under shades
    then do the opposite

    .Misogyny.

    Definitely
    late hours
    cell phone voice mail

    .automatically

    Stumbles in intoxicated

    .grinning.

    from club sinning
    with skanky women

    her cheeks are slapped,
    happy?

    Black eyes imprinted
    Soo0o0 repeatedly
    its considered natural mascara

    T-
    -e
    a-
    r-
    -s

    Weeping
    in
    mirrors

    cosmetic ..s m e a r e d

    screaming WHY?!?!

    while hes rudely behind her

    lost in reveling .laughter.



    FEMALE PART:

    And it was that cruel, taunting laughter
    that spurred what came after.....


    A new thought fought
    The former aches and pains
    To change
    A lot
    Distraught...

    But, tonight,
    SHE would be
    The violent transgressor
    As into her hand, she slipped from her Dresser
    A slim, sharp pair of tweezers...

    Then, at that moment,
    By the back of her hair
    He SNATCHED
    And, by now, her plan
    Was maturely hatched
    As she was dragged
    From her seated mirror to the floor
    Then he cursed her, slapped, and tore
    At the gown she wore
    But, this time, she didn't even try to crawl away
    Because, TONIGHT would be the last
    Of this kind of violent, sexual fray...

    He called her all kinds of names
    Reserved for women of ill-repute
    And, like always, she knew
    What would follow suit
    As he pulled off the belt
    That she knew so well
    From every bruise and every welt
    He'd given her before
    But, tonight, she'd settle the score....

    And when he'd finished with her lashing's ration
    Like always, it spurred his sexual passion
    So, he kicked her over to begin the rape
    Just then, was when, she could secure her escape...

    And, as he so roughly pummeled into her
    She fought to clear her vision's blur
    But just as his gathering semen
    Was about to burst
    Deeply
    INTO
    his
    T
    E
    S
    T
    I
    C
    L
    E
    S
    The tweezers, she submersed
    And
    GRIPPED
    AND
    TWISTED!

    *Before tonight, he never knew such pain existed!*

    He screamed and punched her
    And even attempted to choke her by the throat
    But, she never waivered. She held on
    So his strength was weakened and remote

    Yes, she scrambled right along with him
    As he tried to get away
    But his every movement
    Just made him all the more, pain's prey

    Then, he, finally, passed out
    And so she, for a change,
    Kicked HIM so as to leave no doubt
    Before she gathered some clothes
    Grabbed her cellphone and keys
    And as she drove away,
    At last.......Her body ached
    But her SOUL was eased.

    AT EASE...

    in its ghastly hope
    that never again will spirits know
    the pain that held her captive mind
    so destitute for such a time
    allowing this animalistic treatment to spur
    doubts of inadequacies deep within her
    'til necessity born of dread and fear
    forced her hand to this point here


    beautifully scripted collaboration. IT IS A SHAME THAT ANYONE WOULD HAVE TO ENDURE SUCH DEPRAVITY...WHEN WE'RE ONLY LOOKING TO BE LOVED.

    Thank you very much, Bro Baller and Sister Nevar!


    Actually, I was very surprised when the guy asked me to do this piece with him.....Domestic abuse is not my personal experience. So, I had to reach deep for this one.

    But, I had the stories of relatives and friends to draw from to write it.

    Thanks again, you two!

    CherryB...

    The pain and suffering in each line, coupled with the loss of a childhood friend due to domestic abuse made this a difficult read. You both did an excellent job with this. Very powerful!

    'Sorry for the painful memories. Actually, it wasn't all that easy to write it either.


    But, thank you so much for the read and praise.

    Thank you, Queen!


    Yeah, I had to put some of myself in this one by having her fight back! (lol)

    I had to make her the "VICTOR" and not another dead woman.


    Cuz, when it comes to ME and a man putting his hands on me...

    Well, like Cedric The Entertainer said..

    "I WISH A MUTHA-#%$@& WOULD!" lol


    Thanks again!
