Dear Jack, wow.. this is a very touching subject. Many will read this and relate to this kind of abuse or other forms of abuse. God, bless us all, especially the one's who found the strength in knowing we are not alone..... Congratulations, in Susan's "ABUSE" contest... Goodnight **PD

This is such a sad but sometimes very true poem my friend! I hate it when things like this happens, it make me very angry when there are men that do this to their wives or anyone for that matter, but especially to women! This is a phenomenal poem Jack, such a tremendous piece, Great Work!!

In my opinion, this stark reality is a home run for the contest. It vividly paints the picture of abuse
