A poem dedicated to victims of domestic violence... I hope you find the courage to leave because, your life matters!

Ten…

I gave you myself for 10years

My life I sacrificed

So you could have yours

My face

Plastered in fake smiles

My body adorned expensive jewellery

The world…envious

Of our life

Of our love

 

Nine…

That’s how many times I tried

To leave

To move on

To flee

To be free

To be strong

To start over

To be new

Re born

 

Eight…

I bled

For eight hours

Waiting for you to stop

As I lay there lifeless

While you hit me

Beat me

Dragged me

Destroyed me

Broke me down

 

Seven…

Grand apologies

Spread across continents

Your words written

In sand

Alas!

It got washed away

By the sea

And the salt

Burned the scars left behind

 

Six…

Beautiful red roses

That made me think

Maybe

Just maybe

It signified a new start

The roses

Soaked up my blood shot tears

Fusing into its roots

Making your love and my pain the same

 

Five…

Meetings I attended

‘Stay’ they said

‘Time will heal your wounds’

‘Be patient’

‘Pray’

‘You have it easy’

For years

Myself I blamed

I wasn’t good enough for you!

 

Four…

Opportunities

I had lost myself

A shadow

I had become

I live to survive

Like an animal

In the wild

You, my hunter

I, your prey

 

Three…

Cuts I made

Merging pain

On pain

Hoping if you saw me bleed

You would stop

New scars

On old ones

Every day

A different pain

 

Two…

My babies

Children I left behind

To grow up with you

Their father

My husband

The monster

Who will save them?

Who will take my place?

Who will love them?

 

One…

All it took was one

The last blow

I was dead even before I died

I watched

As my body hit the ground

And I screamed

For I knew

At that moment

IT WAS TOO LATE!!!
