BETRAYED AND REJECTED

4207747350_3f973d2f68_z

The decade has been waisted
Times cruel touch grasp heavily,
     sure to crush the will to live
Today, there’s no sense to make,
     as pain poisons all logic
Brutal are the hands that wound,
     and violently kills love

Damaged, broken, the brides mocked
     a whore labeled unworthy
Children question the why’s
     without answers presented
Assumptions deem her useless
     disposable, deserving

Hands meant to protect, heal, love
     merely offend with a strike
Uncaring notions at best
     concerning a lifelong vow
Vows meant nothing from cold lips
     emotionless, without care

Sacrificed everything
     for nothing but selfish gains
Taking down everyone
     without consideration
While labeling the bride, whore
     a beaten down, foul, whore

  1. Raw and powerful poem… Interesting counterpoints… at the end, vows didn´t mean so much.
    You have portrayed a sad reality that many women must overcome… Luckily, resilience is such a powerful force… Sending all my best wishes!
