Poetry: End Domestic Violence!

The Slap wasn't kinky or fun like a slap on the buns/Anger permeated the air like ozone

Once/upon time/they locked/doors/tore clothes/off/with teeth/hours/passed from/sunrise/to/sunset/loves musk perfumed sofa pillows/hall carpet burns/Love unbound/

Hour/pon/hour /alone

Gone! Love/Gone!

Replaced with desires of escape/revenge/hatred and fear of being alone with once/loved one


Her face swollen/fear pumped through her heart and veins/Her date/eyes glazed/words putrid projectiles/foamed mouth/tongue insane/He slapped/He punched/He kicked/He screamed! He no longer the love of her life/Respect/Manhood and dignity burned and blowing away like menthol scented ashes

Her face pulp/her will shaken /but now unmovable/love gone/love gone/Next day/

phone calls/sweet words/mean nothing/flowers /engagement rings/ tombstones/monuments of dead love/love now wrong/love gone!

Young fiery passion/now smoldering ember ashes/wedding bell/sweat stained sheet/jasmine scented walks in the sunset/now/rainy/obsidian/black funeral masses!

End Domestic Violence!

No matter how it's packaged, violence against another human is just wrong.

Awesome Poem. I must give kudos. I do not condone DV. I've been a victim of that myself and I know it isn't fun or right.
