The Abuse

He knocks her to the floor, In the night, her blood bleeds black She starts heading for the door, But then he begs her to come back She's in ecstacy, then pain, This has happened times before She's addicted to his game, So she comes on back for more He whispers sorry in her ear, And prays she'll say okay He's always scared that she'll give up, But she always says she'll stay She kisses him, and holds him tight, She knows she'll never leave She tells him it'll be alright, As her heart goes on to bleed

    Dana, this is a very touching subject. Many will read this and relate to this kind of abuse or other forms of abuse. God, bless us all, especially the one's who found the strength in knowing we are not alone..... Congratulations, in Susan's "ABUSE" contest... Goodnight **PD

    It takes courage to walk away and it becomes more difficult the longer it goes on.There is NO love involved in the dominating end. It is the personification of evil and cowardice. Great realistic look at abuse.

    Bravo, A masterpiece, the sadness and truth in it makes it unacceptablely good. I hate men that beat women.
