There is a violence behind your eyes, it’s a chaotic reign of terror. Something that can never be tamed, it’s a never ending war. Your world is moving backwards, but at least it’s moving and not stagnant like mine. Life today is not worth the pain, there is no peace, there is no sanity, what is left is only lies.
Everyday on the radio, on the tv, the reports they never change, murder, homicide, abuse, domestic violence rules the air waves. Blood spills visible for all to see but what’s not so plain to the naked eye is the mental abuse that occurs behind closed doors. I’m not suggesting you’ve done it all but that which you have done often makes me wish I was never born.
The same hand that built this house is now destroying it. The hand that once relieved the pain is now causing it. The fire and the passion that once thrived in this house now burning it too the ground.
It’s hard to trust, it’s hard to walk, it’s hard to sleep, it’s hard to breath. You’re a criminal within the law because the law ignores my kind. I have a voice, I have my words but they mean nothing when your constant abuse never lets them be heard. It’s hard to see the future through swollen blood shot eyes.
Despite the fact that this crime goes on. Despite the fact that it’s a media buzzword and despite the fact that the tabloid press love nothing more than reporting the pain, domestic violence, mental anguish and the psychical mind fuck you deliver is ignored because you are the fairer sex.
I am the forgotten victim
Forgotten by the system
Forgotten because of gender
No choice but too surrender
The law is on your side
All I can do is hide
From all of the abuse
for which you provide no excuse.
I shouldn’t have to add a disclaimer to this but I will!
The story is not based on ANYONE, while it is non-fiction and this does happen in the real world it IS NOT PERSONAL! It’s based on something I was reading, my intention was not to come off as a woman hater, or someone who blames women for everything but denial that the topic is only perpetrated by one gender as is so often the case in this country it bullshit.
