    He holds her tight into his arms;
    He kisses her lips kindly,
    Making her feel special for that day.
    A thousand apologies for his mistakes,
    But yet he does it again and again,
    Always leaving
    The mark of his so called 'love',
    Upon her body and torn soul.
    He tries to sooth her spine with
    His hands but she shivers
    At his usual kindness,
    Telling her the repeated words,
    That are so frequently said to her,
    "I would never hurt you again"
    But that same night the mark
    Of his sick love is placed upon
    Her dying soul once more.
    She knows the wrongs of
    What he's doing to her
    And when for that one moment
    That he caresses her,
    They all fade away like puffs of smoke,
    But yet with all the hell
    That he brings to her,
    She still stays always bearing
    The mark of his so called 'love' upon her.

    Surely we all know or should, that names do change..as his will change to: "the mark of death" ...don't sell yourself (life) short, ...send him packing :horse:

    I guess this is how it is, for those being abused. Knowing that this shouldn't be, yet falling under the spell of what love should feel like, before the blows. Artfully put poet, flow on.
