Lost Forever (poem)

Updated on February 1, 2013

A lost forever deep in lover’s eyes

A path to never floating off in tears

A shroud of pain replaces Joyous years

As in the streets of darkness someone cries

-

There every kiss they shared a sweet goodbye

Each hug each hope now joins in the refrain

Till emptiness a reason must explain

Just why a precious dream was called to die

-

Her skin still bore the scars of nightly fights

Each bruise she wore echoed new life she bore

Each beating got much worse than those before

And no one saw or listened to her plights

-

So there she was a victim of a knife

Escape she chose to end her lover’s life

      Such a sad tale. Unfortunately happens in real life too. Great message to stop the abuse before it destroys someone's life.

      I can't say that I b lame her. It happens frequently, and the woman still is punished by law.

      What a beautiful way to call attention to a dark side of life that so many live with on a daily basis. Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where these things where there abuse was a subject only spoken of as a part of history and not the present? It will only happen if we keep talking about it and reminding the world that for some, life is hard and painful. We have to stop the abuse. Thank you MH, for reminding us.
