I remember the way I felt...
The fear..
The pain..
The disappointment..
When I felt your fist against my face..
Your strong hands around my neck..
Beliving you would kill me this time...
Struggeling to breathe..
Hoping to survive...
Just one more time..
Passing out...
waking up pretending it never happened..
That it was just one more bad dream..
Hoping it was the last time..

Odins- Great read
I really related to this - having had just one experience like this.

I can't fathom staying with someone and giving them the opportunity to do it again.

This was right to the point - and very effective. It communicated the situation very well.

say goodbye...
when we allow someone any one to treat us this way it speaks even then of who we are. what is your staying with this person speaking of you.
the guilt and shame would be in you staying not in your leaving.
love does not try to kill the very spirit of whom it has told it loves.
there are NO excuses. NONE.
you should pack your self up and leave before you wake up DEAD.
the love you feel wwill go away once you see your worth but in order to see it you must LEAVE!

I remember...
I remember waking up and blacking back out. Get out of this Before It's Too Late...

Throwing Punches at Poetry
we enable bad poetry...
with a battered sense of hope
that this is the last time...!
