Abuse Poem

Helping A Friend Stop Abuse

This is to a very good friend of mine. I love her like a sister and no matter how hard I try I can't convince her to get out of an abusive relationship. I am truly hoping that this will help her understand what could happen.

They Could Never Speak Again

©

Published: November 2007

Perfect on the outside,
Putting on a show.
No one knows the truth,
Although a few suspicions show.
The constant bruising on her face,
The hidden anger in his eyes.

The world kept their secret,
No one spoke out.

One time it got out of hand,
The beating to hard.
Her life came to a sudden stop.
Like the end of the ticking clock.
They could never speak again,
The worlds cycle just continued,
Flowing on and on.

As we walked through the door,
we needed to talk and so much more.
About the things we recognize,
About the things that make us hurt inside.

Wounds heal but scars, last a life time.
When I was six at stayed at your house. Lying on the couch all tucked in, not expecting that what was bound to happen could ever happen to me. You came through the door then went to your room, I must have been asleep cause all I remember was you laying me on your bed. I didn't think much of it so I rolled onto my side. I remember you rolling me back on my back. I member you telling me "I'll show you what its like being with a man." You stuck yourself inside me. I laid there taking the pain, not knowing what you was doing. Years has gone by sinse that night, haunting my dreams every time I close my eyes. Wounds heal but scars, last a life time.

How could you touch me like that?
How could you say those things?
How could a GRANDFATHER be so disgusting!
Why would you pull my arm till I bleed just to touch my private areas/
Not even 10 years old and you touch try to rape till I pushed you off. I know I did wrong when you made me walk home alone in the dark!
Why did you have to try to take my innocents at such a young age why ? why GRANDPA why?
The pain hurts now that I can't look you in your eyes, it hurts knowing you told me "that's just what people do now Erica you will get used to it soon so do it now"
I didn't let you but you still insisted to put me through pain !
but now I'm 16 and no more will you touch me I hate you and hope you burn in HELL GRANDFATHER <3
