NO MORE! she cries silently as a life of abuse engulfs her.
"No More!" I cried as I curled into that ball of misery
fetal, a blot of humanity lost in submission and resignation
I lay still hopeful that no more of your anger will find me
I lay hopeful that you forget I exist, for just one moment
for years now we have existed so
Arguments fights, the blows you reign on me
why don't I listen to you? why don't I take it in?
you tell me to stop overcooking the dinner and there it is burnt
Yes I know your frustration
A fist swung in deranged fury
a plate aimed with complete accuracy
blood on the floor for me to bleach
I bleach away the stains of your assault
on the floor my hands and knees as support
Will your reach down and touch me
hold me, love me, completely possess me?
how long will I move like a microscopic germ
silent, shrinking unseen by you
or will you see me as your lover
take me to our room make me yours
not like you did when love grew
not like you did to kill the lifebud of our tenderness
when you cursed and hurt that thing within
you called it a cancer and smashed it from existance
I weep for my child,
the unborn, silent victim to our tortured lives
Please I cry again, you are angry at my pleas
your dark shadow hovers above me.
