How some women fool themselves into thinking an abuser will change. Its rare that they do. If you are in this kind of situation, GET OUT before its too late for you.

He don't mean to hit me 
He said he would stop 
He said he was sorry 
He even told the cop 

He's under alot of stress 
So much pressure in his life 
No one else to take it out on 
Except his loving wife 

No, I won't press charges 
Though he's hurt me before 
I know him better than anyone 
He won't hit me anymore 

So he drinks a little beer 
And it makes him mean 
He can be so sweet... 
Life isn't always what it seems 

He tells me that he loves me 
And I take his hand 
He won't hit me anymore 
Why can't you understand 

          (C) Linda Hill

GET OUT before its too late.

And I hope many listen to you.

oh, Linda, I am breathless. This issue is such a problem. My ex hit me once and I had him hauled off to the military cop shop. Next day he was on his knees. It takes so much courage to believe that he WILL hit again and to turn and leave. To commit to something entirely against what you thought you had committed to. If you have gone through this, I am sorry that you did, and hope it is over.

the directness of expression
is what makes this poem real and so
very worthwhile - it speaks directly
and intimately to the reader and hits home..
all assault is horrible and so many women
and some men suffer terribly;
fine work, Linda, thank you

Great message, Linda....and I totally won't change...Get out! Nicely done...

Reviewed by John Domino 9/25/2012
Well done Linda - get the word out!

No human being nor any animal deserves this kind of treatment. There is just nothing good about it. Get out now! Then seek help for the other person so they will not hurt another in this way ever again.

Peace, love and blessings,

John Michael Domino

Something I have written about as a psychology major
Abusive relationships often the woman feels there is
no way out, but there is help. It takes a lot of

Excellent write

Again and again, he lied to himself, and you. Cut the lie short, you know what to do.

Sadly all too many abuse cases are never reported and the abusers are only empowered to do more damage...
Reviewed by Teresa Walker 9/25/2012
Linda, thank you for sharing this with your authorsden! Abuse is a terrible thing male or female and needs more awareness to be made known! I pray escape for anyone that has encountered this and relief is on the way for them.

Thanks again!
Teresa Walker
