    The purple curtain drawn
    Nodbody can see beneath
    Instead they merely wonder
    Where her bruises came from

    The purple curtain drawn
    They cannot hear the screams
    She cries
    Instead they blame tiredness
    On her red and puffy eyes

    The purple curtain drawn
    Nobody can smell the burning flesh
    That the torture brings
    Instead they ask themselves
    Why she doesn't quit
    Her ciggarettes

    The purple curtain drawn
    They cannnot feel her pain
    Even though it shows in
    Every line of her face
    Instead they blame her depression
    On a past they don not know

    The purple curtain drawn
    Nobody can taste the blood
    That's spilt
    Instead they simply wonder
    Why she's in hospital again

    The purple curtain drawn
    Nobody wants to see beneath
    Instead they simply tell themselves
    That she left him
    Once and for all

    most people ignore what they fear...hoping that in doing so it will somehow disappear...and in fearing it, they show their lack of understanding...always too late, people say they should have done something....and then on the other hand so many believe that if a woman is stupid enough to stay with an abuser, she is asking to be abused....if only these types of situations could be as simple as , stay or go?....

    I enjoyed this one Emma...

    Rich - Thanks heaps, your approval is appreciated

    Elayne - Thank you so much for the love and for recognising my change in style. I'm glad you like it.

    K - Even in everday situations people are afraid of entering a situation for fear of becoming involved. As far as I'm concerned this is selfish and hopefully karma comes their way.
    As for a woman deserving to be abused because she is stupid enough to stay with the abuser.... this is something I do not understand. Although I recently learnt that someone very close to me who I consider to be a strong and confident was in an abusive relationship for many years. I guess we never can tell.
    Thanks for your words and for reading.
