The hitting,the torture,the pain,and the tears...
Something I lived through for a few years...
The yelling,the slapping,the constant hate...
All done by the man who I vowed as my mate...
He locked me in a closet,he played Russian Roulette...
Who was in charge,I'd never forget...
He woke me with stabbings in the wall next to my head...
He'd scare me awake and yank me out of bed...
He said he'd find me if I ever left...
My pride and my spirit,he committed that theft...
He said he'd kill me if I found someone new...
The fear of even thinking just grew and grew...
Finally I escaped without blinking an eye...
I was so happy,but had no tears left to cry...
For awhile I was a victim of his controlling game...
But now,I'M A SURVIVOR,with a life and a name...


~ I DEDICATE THIS POEM TO ALL VICTIMS
AND SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ~

ur poem
hey
ur poem has really touched me. being in a violent relationship, which ended about a year ago (thank you God), it really brings back the feelings i was going through then, but it has also brought back that feeling of relief that you gain when you finally do walk away. i love the poem!!! thank you for putting that smile back on my face.
