Image for the poem against it all

against it all

It is time to break this circle
an incident where tension
gradually began to fade  
 
in continuant cooperation
striving to enhance his
physical emotional need
 
an attempt to make amends
through periodical gestures
restoring the bond
 
we called it love
It was nothing really
he tells her
 
She is unaware
that other people
look down on her
 
ever changing subject  
to his grievances
the hurt
 
the shock
all pain she had to swallow
Her devout behavior
binding her to him
 
Being abusive
is a choice
triggers
memories
 
of how power laden motives
make her remember how
she hurt his self esteem
 
It should not
have to feel terrible
to love someone
partner abuse
craves understanding
 
and still is rewarded
approved in society
it is time to break this circle
 
trauma is a road
the phantom
of forgiveness
