The Heartbreak of Verbal Abuse ~ A Poem

When Theresa writes poetry, the inspiration comes from her or her family's true life experiences, which results in dramatic poetry.

Sad eye with tear

Sad eye with tear

Song of Solomon 4:7

All beautiful you are, my darling, there is no flaw in you."

God sees you as a masterpiece, as you are made in His image!

Dedicated to all the Beautiful Women in the World, Who Have Been Told Otherwise

You gave him your heart at a very young age

Now, from jaded eyes, sadness emanates

Grapples, does your scarred mind with its

Constant companion . . .

The unanswered question of WHY, penetrates

Remembering back to the days of your youth

Running into the arms of your future full of hope

Oh, yes, he was the answer to all of your dreams

Dejected, now each day you are attempting to cope

This day will be no different than any other day

You just knew he was the one who could set your heart free

Yet through it all, your heart remains loving and tender

Despite, hidden deep within, a desire to one day just flee

Striving ever harder in an attempt to please

In hopes of dispelling the harshness of such vile speech

Still nothing you could ever do will make him happy

As the words attach to your soul like a blood-sucking leech

Held hostage by his words which are so demeaning

Despondent, your heart conflicts with what your mind knows so well

While he is enjoying every minute of your life full of torment

Forlorn, you will rise yet again to another day of pure living hell

Working tirelessly to help provide for your family

At times when your face may reflect just a little hint of joy

This day is no different than any other day

Soon, at you, he spews words that kill and destroy

Sacrificing for your children, whom you do so adore

Still devoted are you, a faithful mother and wife

And through all of this, your heart remains loving

Surviving this dismal existence full of unrelenting strife

Despite all, your heart attempts to continue to sing

So what, you wonder, is the reason behind such disdain?

Your loving heart aches each and every waking moment

Why must he cause you a lifetime of pain?

You are so very strong to have held on this long

It is past time to rise above this and set your heart free

Echoing, endless echoing, are his choice of words to wound

Revelation . . . this is not living life, nor who you are meant to be

Once unveiled eyes reveal this is anything but love

Daring to escape and the hope it creates

You gave him your heart at a very young age

Now, from jaded eyes, sadness emanates
