abuse is abuse whether verbal, physical, mental, emotional, or sexual. It all destroys!!!

Dance To My Beat

soft and gentle
loud and strong
careful in singing
and playing your song

better play well
don't sing off key
minor or major
which bruise will it be

dance to my beat
wear that gown I adore
watch those blundering feet
as you fall to the floor

your hair is a mess
just look at that face
your attempt at beauty
is a blatant disgrace

you bitching whore
you ugly slut
suck in your stomach
I can't stand that gut.

"Oh baby, I need you
come lay down at my side."

I did just as he asked

and later

I cried.

A cold and sudden chill of memory flowed through every fiber of my being as I read through this piece. A tragic tale that leaves me to cry -- again.
