    beating
    retreating
    wanting
    needing
    is it worth it
    should i stay
    will it stop
    or
    continue from day to day
    hand up high
    can't take no more
    abuse is not the answer
    i think it's best to walk out the door
    "i love you" wont do
    take your hands off me
    i am not your punching bag
    although
    thats not what you see
    no more beatings
    no more retreating
    no more wanting
    no more needing
    time to let go
    time to walk out
    time to take no more
    thats what i've found out.........

    talk to the hand.

    i hope this was just a topic you wanted to explore...and not the real of your reality. if it is/was, SHOULD I STAY should never have been a question.

    thought provoking.:(

    Welcome Buttercup...

    Now this is one of my serious Pet peeves....
    detailed as this peice is, for many women it is an
    everyday occurence......and walking out before the
    first slap isn't soon enough.

    you need someone more mature
    also relationships don't need to be confrontational either

    so good luck in finding your peace (piece)
