Broken Bruised And Busted

Years ago so forsaken, broken, bruised, and busted. 
This wounded heart in others always had trusted. 

Seeing stars from being beaten was mighty damned rough. 
At the hands of a large drunken man thought to be tough. 

Strangled and choked by large hands was his tool of choice. 
Still my nightmares with cold sweat rings his harsh voice. 

Barely escaped wheels of his car that sped down on me. 
Brown eyes blinded with tears running for my life I had to flee. 

Warm crimson blood flowed salty to the taste. 
Curled up in the corner as another blow he won't waste. 

Brown eyes swollen could hardly see a thing. 
Wishing for death this angel with a broken wing. 

Slammed into the walls in a drunken fit of rage. 
Never allowed to leave always kept in hells cage. 

Spit on and cussed at by this demon from hell. 
Sweet freedom finally came one day so I could live to tell. 

Many years now have passed since those frightening painful days. 
But still the nightmares come won't let me forget his heartless ways. 

* Sometimes we go through ugly painful things in life to show us just how strong we really are. Not all were as lucky as me to escape the abuse that I had suffered years ago but one can only pray that the many out there will find the strength inside as well to get out as well as get help they need from others. *

    This was very hard for me to read . . . I can only imagine what it was like for you. Thank-you for giving me a peek. I have three daughters and I hope they never go through the violence/domination you experienced but I do hope they develop strong spirits like yours. Continue to live strong and courageously, love, light, and hugs . . . a country girl will survive!

    Dear Mary Jo, you are so terrific and brave, this shouldn't happen to anyone. I watched my mother go through this for 17 years of my life and she eventually left when he assaulted me. But to this day even though he’s passed, my mother at 82 still loves him so. I adored my father, but when he drank the evil demon would come out. A"7" from me: prayers, love and hugs :) eve
