Painful Love

Slap me in my pride,
fuck my pussy,
till you cry,
emptying all apologies,
I won’t forgive you,
till you die.

Make it my fault,
bruises I made you paint,
look at what I’ve done,
such a stupid clumsy cow,
beat me till I see tomorrow,
when all I want is now.

I want your hand,
to stroke my face,
the love lost,
I try hard to trace,
dreaming of a day to smile,
without being strapped,
back into place,
if only for while.

This whore just wants the past,
not the lies of a photograph,
not the smile,
that hides the fist,
but the love,
that fills these eyes,
I have taken all the anger,
It’s time for “Bitch” to rise.

The abusive relationship, where a woman has had enough after so many cuts and bruises……I think this may be only part 1, it looks like it has a follow up.

    Powerful explanation of contrasting feelings and emotions in abusive relationship in which the paradox is: “Neither with, nor without you” (Especially for women). Instant fav!

    such an intense tangle of emotions…. you truley have gotten inside the mind, heart and soul of this….. their is no black and white when it comes to such relationships of love and abuse….. the struggle and heartache occurs on so many levels…. bravo to you for exploring them so eloquently…………b

  • Thanxz butchart!!I appreciate the comment, and very true those relationships are never black and white, And thanxz for the favs, I did write another ending for them, but it was too late and had to call it Revenge is Sweet, I wish I went with that ending instead, anyway it works well on it’s own ; )
    Thanzx again mate!!!
