Domestic Violence

By | 1 February 2019

the vicious cycle
perpetrator to victim
victim to perpetrator
normality
an abomination
one woman a week dies
spitting words like daggers
intentions
malicious
designed strategically to inflict pain

It looks like
obsessive love
an intense man
volcanic
in eruptions of
love and hate
a thousand repeated threats
abandonment
worthlessness
a thousand repeated I’m sorry
unconditional forgiveness
issues of dependency

I am educating
young people
topic discussion
major issues of society
caution
sensitive
only one girl
knows
the real-life issues
Hozier’s video of Cherry Wine
strikes a puncture of realisation
resulting in a
mirror reflection
