The abusive husband

Blackened and bruised she sits in a corner cowering and fears for her life
her husband once again is on the rampage to beat up his wife
The children scared and crying sent to their room  
scared and confused at their mother's impending doom
She hears his heavy breathing and fearing for her life
if only she had been smarter and never become his wife
she can hear her children's muffled cries wishing she could hold them
but if she makes one sound she knows that he will also hit them
