Domestic Violence Abuse

A Poem by Adri

From the mouth of a woman being abused by her spouse, “I wonder if this is how my life will be from now until I die.”

He pulls my hair.
He slaps my face.
He kicks me on the floor.

I love him so much,
So I don’t have the strength
To walk right out the door.

There’s blood on my face.
Everything hurts,
And all I can do is cry.

I made him mad,
So this is what he does.
I wish I knew his reason why.

My heart won’t let me leave him,
And it hurts too much to try.

I wonder if this is how my life will be
From now until I die.

He says he’s sorry.
He takes me in his arms.
He even starts to cry.

I tell him I forgive him
And that everything is fine.

For now at least because I know
It will happen again in time.
