Emily, very vivid description of what a person who is seriously contemplating suicide might be thinking...very potent, and in the end, thank goodness, very positive, it got pretty dark there for a while. Glad, so glad the knife is put away. Be well, Kathy
What You Don't Get (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 5:06:36 PM
The pain in this one is sooo real and feelable by the reader that I almost wish I were there to send this loser away and comfort you for it seems your own pain is being put on hold just so you can try and feel for the silly problems of this person who came knocking. Very well done...raw but real.

Emily..what terrible experiences, both physical and mental you have going on within you and to you. As others below, who have stopped by and commented, that first step has to be taken, to break away and never return to what you are now involved in. You, have to think of yourself, you are important, just remember that. You may not be able to see past the person who is harming you, mentally and physically, he probably blocks out everything else around you when he is in charge. I hope with all my might, that just once, you get up enough nerve to run, and never look back.. Don't hesitate, run like hell..

To wonder why, to ask why, to ponder their games are all a terrible waste of your time and energy. He's a bully, he'll probably never change and when you are gone, he'll quickly find another to take your place so he can play his game over and over again. I know these things from experience. Get out and don't go back. Get yourself strong so no more bullies will come acalling. they can't tolerate strength in a woman. Blessings, J'nia

I know if what you speak as I've been there. You pen this so well. You are the hero in this story and yes it does end and life can be wonderful again. I'm experiencing that as well. Keep writing it out and wring it out of all its pain. Blessings, J'nia

Undone by the sadness in these lines - words fail, except those of prayer - get out while you can -
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

How I wish I could reach through the screen and embrace you in a hug, let you know everything's going to be okay ... such sadness in these broken lines! I pray this is fictional, but have a feeling it's not ... there is too much pain for your words not to be real. Powerfully penned heartbreak. Well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

As in your other poem,You, this write opens a full floodgate of emotions that range from pity to anger. An abuser is just a bully no matter how you look at it but a bully that takes their own inadadaqucies out on others who only want to love and be love, whether they be adults or children. Most schools have now taken on a no tolerence rule to stop bullying and maybe it is time the law looks at a no tolerence law for abuse.

No one reading this write could be unaffected by your pain, your sadness and your feelings of being alone...reach out though their are people who care and will help...strong voice above the pain.

The confusion is there, but the pain doesn't change. A breaking point comes one way or the other, and I pray for you it is in your safety. The power of your writing tells me your heart and soul are there on the paper.

Wow-that is so raw and intense and brutally honest, all signs of good poetry, poetry that can touch others who really need to hear your message and who can then say, "I am not alone." I agree with Hank that you need to get out of that relationship if it is one you are still in, and that it is easy for outsiders to say, I have been in a verbally abusive relationship and I know how small it makes you feel when someone does this to you. I will be praying for you and I wish nothing but blessings of inner peace and protection for you.- Michelle

Such depth from someone so young. If you can transform this pain into words that help others like you, you have taken a great step forward. But also, please get out of the abusive relationship. You do deserve so much more. Speak to an adult you trust -- a teacher, a minister, a relative -- and start the hard road to recovery. There is a great book on co-dependent relationships, "The Road Less Traveled." The title comes from the Robert Frost poem, "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference."
Best wishes to you.

Don't ignore the bruises, get to the hospital and tell someone, they will make you safe. You are too precious to endure. There are so many options out there, don't do this alone, I've have seen the fatal results, it happens 500 times in a single day and it can happens in just one moment. Domestic Violence is not a game. Be Well, Carin

Is this turmoil within or what is perceived to be happening? If its abuse, run and run fast. If it is self doubt, take that breath and believe. Be Well, Carin'

If your words aren't fiction, look forward - never back. Be well, Liz

Oh you sweet thing, yes there is life after the pain. You walk away stronger, whole and with your head held high. I know because I have been there and the sun does shine very brightly too. The first step is always the hardest, each step there after gets easier as you grow stronger....
Be always safe,
Be always safe,

A sad and tragic situation brought to life in poetry. We can choose to wallow in the cycle of abuse, or make the firm choice to get out of the merry-go-round and regain our life. I dread the time when the abused will learn to "accept" the treatment or even "want" it as a matter of fact. The "why" question is moot and academic, pointless, and futile, because abuse never has any justification nor rationale.
The last line "And die" left me asking who did...the abused?
