Body Damaged

A face grotesque Blood dripping down her cheek Her eye jabbed A horror that beseeched her this night As clumps of hair come out of her skull She can’t run And she is greatly damaged Crushed within Her soul is hurt Disfigured as her face Torn apart Her mouth spits red blood to the ground Open wounds carry all over her face The man hates He proves his worthlessness She’s beaten by his rage

    This one is loaded..Sad that there are men out there that will do this..You did a good job of leading the reader into the subject..I was expecting a car accident..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    Russell,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    Wow Russell, you outdid yourself with this one. Domestic violence always shows their traces. Thanks for sharing such an important message through your poem today and have a warm and joyous Thanksgiving. Hugs always, Gail
