Abuse Poems - Poems about Abuse
Abuse. Tears, Shatter. The floor, Cracks. Against the splashes, You hear them splat. Your heart beats furiously. The girls heart breaks. She falls. Eyes shut. Some poems have a short title, others have a long title. In this poem written by the poet Mak, we see a title that looks a lot like an introduction. What did she do so bad, that you had to lay your hand? I don't understand how you can hit a 10 year old with a ******* cane, are you seriously that ******* insane .
You spend a lot time in the past, likely when you first fell in love him. When you explain your fights to anyone who will listen, no one understands why you're apologizing. You are always confused. You're high as a fucking kite when he's nice to you. He says "one small thing," and with an embarrassing clarity, you are reminded of all the parts of yourself you hate.
How can he see those parts so clearly? You cry a lot. Sometimes you know why. You are not crazy. When you're with your boyfriend, you're usually with just him alone. You feel weird around your friends and family, the people you used to feel the most yourself around.
You can't remember how to feel like yourself anymore. Now, being in your own skin is like a long dull headache that won't lift and then feels like normal. Pretty much all your thoughts about yourself are negative.
There will be good days with your boyfriend. There will be miraculous days of exquisite and suffering beauty between you two. On these days, you will feel better than the best and like everything's okay. You will believe that the chaos has made you stronger; that he loves you more than anything.
These days are bright spots in the darkness that has descended upon you. They are the moments of hope that you'll cling to, your proof that everything is okay. But moments aren't a life. You deserve weeks, months and years of feeling like everything is okay. You deserve a lifetime of that. When your relationship ends, you will drown in the confusing, competing narratives in your head, just like you did while in the relationship. Memory is going to be a weird thing for you for a while.
Grief is a delusional state.
We really loved each other. I could've helped him if I'd tried harder. And sometimes, I don't think love should feel like this. The latter will be quieter, the former will roar inside you. Some days, you will think you left the most beautiful relationship and the truest love in the whole world. Some days you will think you are just hysterical and crazy and that you weren't being abused at all.
Until very recently, I still had days like that. After you break up with him, you might not feel an immediate sense of relief, empowerment or really anything that resembles "I know this is the right thing. Unfortunately, coming out of the fog with your eyes open is more painful than slipping into one without noticing.
You aren't the worst off you've ever been. It sounds crazy but welcome it. That sadness is going to live in you for a long time and it will teach you a lot. I know you don't believe me, but that sadness is your friend. That sadness is your becoming. Not everyone you lose is a loss.
Tell your story no matter how murky the details seem at first.
