Abuse Poems

He gave me flowers

     

    I got flowers today. It wasn’t my birthday or any other special day.
    We had our first argument last night and he said a lot of cruel things
    that really hurt me. I know that he is sorry and didn’t mean to say the
    things he said – because he sent me flowers today. 

    I got flowers today. It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.
    Last night he threw me into a wall and then started to choke me.
    It seemed like a nightmare but you wake up from nightmares to find
    that they aren’t real. I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.
    I know he must be sorry – because he sent me flowers today. 

    I got flowers today. And it wasn’t Valentines Day or any other special
    day. Last night he beat me and threatened to kill me.
    Makeup and long sleeves didn’t hide the cuts and bruises this time.
    I couldn’t go to work because I didn’t want anyone to know
    But I know he is sorry – because he sent me flowers today. 

    I got flowers today and it wasn’t Mother’s Day or any other special day.
    Last night he beat me again and it was much worse than all the other
    times. If I leave him what will I do? How will I take care of the kids?
    What about money? I’m afraid of him and too scared to leave him!
    But he must be sorry – because he sent me flowers today. 

    I got flowers today. Today was a very special day.
    It was the day of my funeral.
    Last night he finally killed me. I was beaten to death.
    If only I would have gathered enough courage and strength to leave him. 

    So I got flowers today – for the very last time.
