True Poem Of Abuse

                                ~True Story Of Abuse~

Marrying her at an immature age, older by 30 years, 
arranged marriage by her father.
Abuse started from day one. 

Raped fiercely that night, screamed for hours unable 
to move, she dozed off.
Ordering her to get his tray of breakfast, in bed,
once in with the tray, he glared at her,
with ferocious eyes, snatched it, smashed it on her head,
the boiling coffee burning her face, the glass hit her head 
strongly, a mortal blow, she lost conscious. 

He held her by her hair opened a dark small room
threw her inside, and closed the door. Not knowing
what to do, her face hurting from the burns, 
the head bleeding from the glass, so tortured
she dozed off.

A bang the door opens he snatches her from her hair again
take her to the dirty old bed, and begins raping her like
a wild animal. She lost conscious, and woke up again in
the same dark room, dirty, aching, hungry, helpless,
not knowing when someone anyone would come 
to her rescue.

After a few nights the same procedure, she started 
fainting out of weakness. One dark night he carried 
her far in his car, she felt being thrown out, 
lost conscious.

Awake in the hospital completely blind screamed? 
where am I? mother please dad, her mum held her 
caressed her, told her what is wrong with her,
due to the abuse of days and nights. 

Sorry my child, you will be blind, disfigured, pregnant
but please don't worry, we will take care of you and 
your child.

Apologizing and crying. They took her home that
day, to her room.They left the room, she never saw 
them again, she committed suicide later a knife
right into her heart. Bled to death. 
Her true story as an abused newly wed.
age 16.

    This is unspeakably sad, Terry! I've read the book Burned Alive about honor crime in this part of the world. It is beyond description. :( Thanks for sharing to bring about awareness...

    I am so so sorry to read that, how possible could there exist human beings like those animals. Life sometimes is not fair. But so glad to read, Jesus saved you, because He also saved my son from cancer. Take care. Terry xo

    Bloody hell Terry, this needed to be written, i've never been able to understand why humans feel the need to be superior by abuse.

    Very sad and even sadder is the fact that it actually happens a lot more than people realize. Susan's contest is sure opening up the platform for many types of messages on abuse. Great job, Terry. My student is here now, just as I saw this poem!! so I am going home for the day. Luv, Andrea

    Hi Russell, it is actually a true story of someone I knew years ago when we were kids, and she did kill herself after 2 years, as many started bulling her. She could not take it anymore, she took a whole box of aspirin during the night, her mum found her dead in the morning. It was so sad. Good night Love Terry xoxo
