Just another Victim

Just another victim that is what I am,
As I am being abused, by the hands of a jealous man,
Beaten every day, it is my fault that I am here?
Then why is it that, no one else seems to care,

Stuck in this empty room, every single day,
Can’t get out, no matter how hard I pray,
Only to wait for him to come again,
And take whatever he wants; will it ever end?

I cried myself to sleep every single night,
Trying to ask God in the process, to take my life,
Empty as I am; I will never be free,
Left in the darkness, after he is through with me,

This is my life, his servant & slave,
Loneliness is my friend, his wrath I can’t escape,
For I am a victim, that is what I am,
Stuck in this life where I am abused, 
By this mad man.

    This is good and you write so well so poetically about your abuser and how it felt to be abused. You explained how hurt you were in words you have got to keep writing about anything you have issues with and just vent on paper writing your poems...you'll feel better!
