Caved Mind; Why I didn’t say


As I did I became the enemy
a paint to decorate their placards
a mere tag that trends the media
while I told the searched so hard
why a heart that loved so hard
has grown as ice in the winter
trying so hard point out how I triggered
his cowardice and insecurities
like rain their unsolicited accusation
an open grave to lay me in
pointing how I was only worth his object
bruising this heart exhausted of fighting
while my abuser
went as free and as high an eagle
looking beneath as I
sank deep into my self
condemned by the very words
you beckoned I let out
because the held dearly
this cave mentality I died

NB: Domestic violence victims often have to deal with the pain and anquish of abuse and the weight of being blamed for their abuse. Domestic violence has no Justification!!!…
