I hear you at the door
Haven't you hurt me enough
Do you want to hit me again
Do you want to play rough
Does it make you feel powerful
To beat me this way
Your anger overwhelmes you
And I have to pay

Does it make you more of a man
To make me feel small
When you see blood on my face
Does it make you stand tall
When flesh meets flesh
Does it give you a thrill
Does it make you a big man
No matter how I feel

Does it make your ego soar
To lower my self esteem
Do you get a high
From listening to me scream
Do you think you're God
As you beat me again
The most painful scars you give
Come from within

Such a sad write, but so powerfully written.
Reviewed by John Bidwell 8/25/2003
Wow this is difficult to read.
It is so sad to know that absolute hell is just the normal routine for some people.
This poem is telling it like it is, but whoever would strike a spouse is probably beyond reason.
What a precious heart you have Linda.

Oh Linda...This one really touched a nerve and spoke to my heart. Your last line was the clincher...and the most true line of all. Excellent poem...I recommend sending it in to a contest. A hands-down winner.
