  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.


Your angry words are heavy

To much for me to hold

But I zone out,

Not paying attention


A smack in the face

It stings

Why did it have to be this way?

Why violence and anger swallowed you?


Your footsteps are loud

Alerting others of your aggression

You have me pinned to the ground

Everyone is watching


All of them silent

You growl as I cringe away from you

I feel the heat of your breath in my face

The stench of alcohol is overwhelming


I feel your nails in my skin

And your knee in my gut

I’ve had enough

You will not step over me


“Stop!” I yelled firmly.

A frown spread across his face

He was not expecting that

“What did you say?!”


“Stop,” I breathed.

I pulled myself up, ignoring his iron grip

And swung my fist towards his face

When they connected, he grunted,


But a surprised expression colored his face

Red liquid dripped from his nose

I looked as shocked as he did,

Though I walked away, leaving him alone.

You will be surprised at the power that we as women possess it wonderul to see you tapped into it.

Surprise twist to this one. Liked the form, and the rhythm, but prefer more rhyme. Good message, and tone. Write on.....

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
