A Husband Abuse

                                
                                     ~A Husband Abuse~.
                                                                    
                                  My husband after 10 years
                                         his love turned 
                                            into hatred
                                    When he buried my soul
                                        stole my strength 
                                         for his own self 
                                 drowned my head to suffocate me
                                       leaving me breathless.

                                       When he betrayed my 
                                              love & broke 
                                           my ego towards a 
                                               helpless fate. 
                       I need to forget when he laughed with everyone 
                                            but made me cry. 
                                        
                                        When he looked old to make 
                                                me feel older
                                        when he broke my mirror  
                                           to make me look ugly 
                                when he breathed but suffocated me 
                                             stepped on my shadow 
                                             to erase my existence.
                                  His heart was like a ship loaded with anger
                               When that night he slashed my body into pieces
                                          till the ocean turned red
                                              rescued by my 2 sons.
                                     Todays scars are all over my body.
                                            This I cannot forget.
 Therese Bacha

    terry, I could have sworn I had read this one of yours before. But I do not see my comment under here. maybe you had written on the same theme. in fact, I think that must be it. I read a longer version of this poem probably. I really love how you wrote this. This is a very well deserved win, Terry. I hope you will have a peaceful Saturday. Email me and keep me posted about your brother. Luv, Andrea

    Shocking and compelling prose, Therese..Men like this are nothing more than bullying, insecure cowards, beating up on those who are physically weaker to boost their own very weak egos...A well deserved win - Tim

    that the other would leave them alone.It surely shows honest painful emotions here..Yet.im glad that whilst writing your verses it showed that you realized that though he tried to make you feel ugly..worthless and more..deep down you realized you are not ugly and worthless.A very strong powerful write from a beauriful. soul..again to my favs.What doesnt kill you makes you stronger and strong you are.May every abuser find time in life to forgive himself maybe then he can find peace..hugs

    People do change unfortunately..they hurt us..they deceive us..they physically or mentally abuse us.Usually these abusers are bullies who. think nothing of themselves..they lack selfasteem and they try to hide the fact by hurting the most vulnerable.They use their power wrongly.They abuse physically or mentally.They go against whats right to show they are spmebody..they cheat too yes..to try and believe they re worth a penny.They try to make others feel worthless cos they are scared the cont.

    A very emotive write, Therese! I read Frank's blogs and came to "see" it with my own eyes! : ) I wonder why you've capitalized all the words, I mean, almost all the words (13 of them are not cap)... any hidden meaning? I hope it's just a fictional poem. My best wishes. Ruben.

    I "usually" dont "use" punctuation, I capitalize the first word of each sentence, so the readers know when "a complete thought" starts and ends. Sometimes I cap a word in the middle of a line to give emphasis... I think that using "all cap" distracts the readers. Have a nice evening.

    therese, you must be the one Frank is talking about at his blog. Go see!!! He really liked your poem and wondered why you pulled it out of his contest. It was GOOD and I feel bad you had to go through all that!!

    Oh, Terry, I love the way you put your words together, my mama taught me when I was little, NEVER" let a man hit you/me, treat you like dirt. So I never backed down,, besides I had my two brothers;} Though I never ran to them. I always pictured a chalkboard &eraser & erased the board. here's to winning contest . love & GOD Bless Terry;}

    Terry; This horrible, for someone to have to go through something like this.There are different kinds of abuse. My ex husband - not my daughter's dad. I was married to for 10 years, made me feel the same way. He beat me once, but would go out with other women and wouldn't even come home. Worst when he got his green card. I finally file for divorce. I'm glad that you are here and safe. God bless you. Lucilla

    What an emotional journey through your pain! I will refer to this poem in my writing class to encourage my students to be in touch with the rawness of it all! Thanks for sharing this with us. I was touched by it all.
