      Please don’t laugh and sorry for long post:
      But maybe it’s alcohol making me feel brave to share this with you all, but I feel like I have bonded with you all through this horrible situation.
      And you are all helping me so much through this horrific journey so I thank you xx
      These poems are so personal to me
      And if anything should happen to me then I
      Just wanted to share this with you to try and explain my life: these words just came out during the past few months when I was and still am trying to make sense of the situation.

      Thank you for taking the time to hopefully read them xx

      My life 😢

      I have three lives which I now live
      Mummy, work and one I constantly forgive
      I smile and laugh when I am outside the house
      But when I’m home I turn into a timid mouse

      I make my excuses everyday
      Why does he have to make me pay
      What have I done that could be so bad
      For him to lose his temper and be so mad

      He says he gets to the point of no return and loses control
      I get pushed around like an old rag doll
      I hate that point of no return
      I should see the signs, I should learn

      You back me into a corner, I can’t get out
      You are scaring me as you continue to shout
      You say you could crush me, break every bone
      I can’t get help you have taken my phone

      I said I wasn’t scared and that I didn’t care
      Intense pain changed that aswell as you pulling my hair
      You definatley showed me who was boss that night
      I will never win this soul destroying fight

      I clean and tidy so that you don’t shout
      My one mistake was not wringing the dishcloth out
      I say I’m sorry I wont do it again
      But that doesn’t stop you inflicting pain

      You have won now, you’ve finally made me cry
      I’m still alive but inside I want to die
      You let me go once you realised you had crossed the line
      You’ve hurt me more than you did the last time

      Twice I thought I wouldn’t see the next day
      when I ask you about it, you say it’s only play
      I’ve had the warning now if I tell anyone or it doesn’t go your way
      I’m so scared now, I will never be able to get away

      I still love him I just don’t like who he has become
      He usually says sorry for what he has done
      He promises he won’t hurt me again and that he is in the wrong
      His promises never last for very long

      I hold on that our life will get back on track
      And that one day my body won’t be bruised and black
      No one would understand if I say i’ve been hurt inside and out
      Too scared to scream, too scared to shout

      I know I’m at the point I’m being told what to say
      Just need to convince everyone we have a normal family life day to day
      I’m a rubbish liar, but I must try
      I have to convince everyone, the stakes are too high !!!

      I know it’s my fault you hurt me, and the other things that you do
      I used to know the signs, but now I have’t a clue
      I’m practising saying you’ve changed and nothing is wrong
      Please let it come true or I won’t be here for long 🙁

      The next chapter:😢

      So wanted the next chapter to say something more
      But I’ve been weak and still haven’t walked out the door
      I tried once so hard I was nearly there
      But your tears begun to flow and the promises of I really care

      I came home from work and out of the blue
      You said ‘ I have bought flowers for you ‘
      My blood run cold were you being my friend
      Or like that poem is this the start of the end?

      I don’t understand your behaviour anymore
      You keep saying you’ve changed but I’m not so sure
      You act too calm I know this isn’t you
      I’m waiting for your next move ..what are you going to do?

      I’ve tried to sort this in so many ways
      I even got brave for a couple of days
      Found my voice and told you I’d had enough
      Although you were calm you were still too rough

      I’m an object now just for you
      It doesn’t matter that I don’t like the things you do
      The bruises are hidden I know which words to say
      I’m too ashamed to speak about how you now make me pay

      Im still waiting for that massive blow
      I know it’s in there as you sometimes show
      When people ask me questions I want to be honest and say yes yes yes
      But the consequences are too high to show that I’m a mess

      So the last chapter and this one are now rolled into one
      Once again it seems like you have won
      You have taken my life although I am still here
      It’s my choice though that I live in fear

      Decisions to make what do I do
      Keep thinking back to when you said I have bought flowers for you
      My life is over which ever way I turn
      Why didn’t I listen, why didn’t I learn 😢😢

      This will be the last chapter as its all going to end
      I will never know if you were honestly being my friend
      Im so so sorry to anyone that doesn’t understand why
      I just can’t stay living this life anymore or living your lie !

      Written a few wks ago- how I feel:😢

      Punish me as much as you need
      In my head I’m already freed
      Totally numb by what you do and say
      Don’t care if it happens all night or everyday

      Don’t care how you do it or what you use
      If it ends in blood or just a bruise
      Don’t care if your hurting me inside or out
      You know I’m never going to shout

      You will never make a tear fall from my eye
      You’ve got me now inside you’ve made me die
      I’m emotionlesss worthless never to be hurt again
      Do your worst you will never cause me pain

      Life really isn’t as bad I’m in an ok place
      Just need to keep a smile on my face.
      I survive each day and we get by
      I’m not scared of your threats it’s my choice to live or die

      Doesn’t feel anymore like it’s happening to me
      I can speak out maybe one day I will be free
      The words won’t hurt I can say them loud
      If I survive one day I will be proud
