    I HEARD HER PAIN

    A quiet night,just me and my man
    relaxing together, nothing more
    When suddenly I hear a terrifying scream
    coming from the apartment next door.

    We looked at each other, then I jumped up,
    and grabbed the phone to call 911.
    He put on his slippers and went running outside
    We could only imagine what her husband had done.



    It wasn't the first time we heard them fight
    But it was the first time she sounded in fear of her life.
    Why do they think it's their duty to stay
    Your not his punching bag ladies, your his wife.

    I understand that it's easier said then done
    But the statistics say your time is running out.
    Get out there and find the help that you need, or
    you will be the next statistic, without a doubt.

    This goes out to all the abused women who are afraid to leave
    their abuser.

    That's very blunt, but she could've seen a roach. :P Not making light of the situation.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
