Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic
This poem represents a women who is abused both physically, and mentally by her significant other. She narrates her catastrophic appearance, and uses figurative language to describe her injuries. Her loved ones continue to ask repeatedly what's is wrong with her, but she's swiftly in denial. The verses then transition from first person (abused women), to second person (abusive male), and concludes the poem by the abusive male admitting to the murder of his wife that he convicted and is now feeling remorseful.

PAIN

 

I thought he was a man.

But he hurts me when hes sober.

The color of the American flag,

embedded in my shoulder.

I keep on asking myself,

''When will this all be over?''

She keeps asking me,

''Whats wrong?''

But I never even told her.

The markings are visual,

But my pain is within.

Watching you breathless, 

Lord forgive me for my sins.

I never would have thought,

I would have killed my best friend.
