Scarlet Letter Abuse
They were just words that penetrated so deep “inside” wounds
Destroying the romance and the happy memory wedding picture,
A veil of abuse over it, in the deep dark down depressions all-around
In that striking blow of Scarlet Letter verbal abuse adverse stricture.
That the scripture was decimated of its vow of love and devotion,
Where it “Lies” and ferments in doubts from unfaithful pain lesions
That never heal, but grow distant in a marriage’s meaning demotion,
Where making love is a cold emotion of wham bam - quickie motions.
The blight of the blossom wilting away as if a pressed rose passing
Passage of a Bible that united two as one once, in a soul mate relationship.
Destroyed by a broadside temper tantrum tirade of vile venom slashing
That belittling intimidation, where love cowers in submissive censorship.
That lovers feel invisible flogging and lashes being enslaved in brutality,
Where spouses become processions that must be subservient processions.
That must adhere to the master’s strict edicts of endless anxiety of actuality,
Walking on pin and needles always to avoid any confrontation aggression.
When in the end, spouses flee the tyranny, only to face its divorce reality,
Where masters try to reclaim their property by eminent domain violence.
When many find the final solution under the gun’s flashpoint finality
In families murdered - an instigator committing family graves suicide silence.
Note please read the Scarlet Letter Society poem about healing that I will write now. I also have an American dream that I can have a book about the abomination of abuse and hatred, where the proceeds go to heal those victims that need cuddling in seminars with only councilors and those abused present. But then, I am a Liberal and Conservative Catholic American that wants the healing Truth and not to hide all the abuse and torture under the rug like the Catholic Church did. That the Catholic Church is finally having sessions for those that have been abused in confessionals that secrecy is not the solution, but the excommunication is, from priestly duties that with no oversight that will only repeat without consequences. I ask the Pope to please come heal American, playing with those who have been abused by the Church or any Institution. That the U.S. Government does not need hollow caste secret Inquisitions of Christianity’s Right Wing WWII example that Jesus is about compassion and universal understanding for all of God’s children. But then I am a Scarlet Letter Liberal American of Free Speech Fairy Tales.
