The Abused Wife

The Abused Wife

She hides behind a smiling mask
I'm fine she replies when people ask
The sunglasses which shield her eyes
Serve to aide her maintain her lies
Both those eyes are ringed with bruises
When her husband drinks, his temper he loses
Upon her his anger is always turned
You think by now she would have learned
Apologies and flowers do not erase
Bruises peppering her body and face
And on occasions when he breaks a bone
She dares not issue a single moan
Alone to the hospital she makes her way
I tripped and fell is what she'll say
Perfectly in place her mask will be
Hoping through it no one will see
But that mask is beginning to crack
Fine lines growing deeper with each attack
For how much pain can one soul endure
Before blackness engulfs a heart once pure
The time is coming when she'll say enough
But the police, this man, will never cuff
For in the cupboard she hides a gun
Once its used the abuse will be done
It will not be her own life she takes
Hubby will pay dearly for his mistakes
