BATTLE SCARS

Poetry By: angellynn
Poetry



This poem is about spousal abuse. Taking abuse for so long can lead to deadly measures. How much can a person take....

BATTLE SCARS

She hides in her room most of the day

still sore from the night before

Knowing his mood could easily change

she cant take the blows no more

She holds tightly to her tear stained pillow

hoping soon he would fall asleep

The liquor finally took control

as the knife sank in so deep

She thought about it long and hard

too scared to take the plunge

She`ll forever carry battle scares

but at least her victories won
