She Promised Him

As she stands there and takes the blows
He's wondering why that text doesn't show
As she bites her lip to hold back her tears
He waits without any thoughts of fear

She's sent away with a shout of rage
He's oblivious to the turning page
She hears the door slam with a crash
He doesn't expect her next painful lash

Her tears spill and her pain gives hint
He can't see how the razor blade glints
Her mind blocked out, a few painless nicks
He continues through, never getting the kick

She drops the blade and watched the blood drip
He thinks of holding her on his next trip
"I PROMISED HIM!" a cry full of regret
"I wonder how she is?" too simple to forget

    Ok so ignore the comment before this one. It was meant for a different person but my laptop was dumb. I actually thank you for reading this and showing some kind of appreciation.

    If you can't see the meaning then what kind of poet are you? All of my poems are very self explanatory and usually not hard to guess at. I won't have someone insult my writing abilities. If you're having difficulties try writing classes or, I don't know, opening you mind before your mouth.

    I can't understand why people write this kind of "guessing game" poetry. It is self indulgent and completely ignores the reader's right to know what it's all about. Don't be surprised when the humble reader, like me goes away disappointed.
