Blunt Abuse

She pours out her soul in the hopes of not To be beaten just like the night before Fear envelopes deep within her thin bones She prays for rain knowing she will be sore But often she takes the blunt of the force To keep her children safe from any harm There are quiet nights of peace when he’s not drunk There was a time when she fell for his charm Now she just hopes her husband isn’t mad For she knows who will suffer from his pain She carries the heartache and tearfulness That is why she always hopes for the rain There will be a day when she will leave him She’ll get up the nerve to leave him behind She will be safe and secure once again And there will be a sweet man that she’ll find

    Yes, it is so sad when the woman is feeling so scared and has to put herself between the abuser and his children, but it's a good mom that does that. I think there are so many kinds of abuse today, how can any one family escape every kind of it? It would be heaven to live with no abuse whatsoever. Makes you wonder how empty heaven might be.

    As sweet as Russell I hope! Great but sad story. My heart bleeds when I see this barbaric treatment of ladies! You may wish to read my recent poem MAN that refers to that!

    Gosh; I do hope so. No one needs abuse like that. I have known women that have been abused like that, but also sometimes men too get abused by women. many blessings and have a great day...... Lucilla
