Life of Strife

I have a friend, who’s name I won’t lend. She is a wife, with a life of strife. Her husband rules as he sits and drools. A trophy is she, for him you see. You cannot look, or he flies off the hook. He controls her life, plays mind games on his wife. Breaks her down, till she hits the ground. Then fills her head, with his plans instead. Sometimes she doesn’t see, the pain it deals to me. I try to help her, with her mind a blur. But… The damage is done, my help has been none. I’m lost at sea, can you hear my plea. She stands on the bank, as her husband pulls rank.

Totally love the structure. It's hard to sit and gaze at someone in dire need of help. It seems no matter what we do, it doesn't help and it drains our caring emotions. I hope things get better for your friend, maybe she should see your poem, so she could ingest it from your perspective...Raul
