Abuse

Looking in the mirror,
With black sunshades on,
Wondering how this happened...
Because this was so wrong,
Mr. Macho arrived Home Sweet Home,
At approximately 3:10,
Out of curiosity she asked...
Baby where you been?
Next thing she found herself,
Rising off the floor,
He wiped his forehead...landed a punch...
Asking would you like one more?
Grasping her purse, one choice was made,
Darling, I won't be played!
She grabbed her last $2.75 as she slid on black sunshades.

I'm so glad she grabbed her purse and walked away. Hope she had never looked back!

A sad commentary on the models for relationships.
Well done.

Domestic violence is such a sad reality. I hope more and more people have the courage to get out of these bad relationships. And the perpetrators should be locked up in a mental institution. A very succinct "in your face" kinda write ... well done.

Love & Light,
Joseph
