Dedicated to women victims of domestic violence-Unkind love-a poem
Domestic Violence is a coward´s weapon. A puny and ill-intent of showing power and dominance which is NEVER justified. This poem is a dedication to those victims.
A necessary reminder
"Spousal abuse is very common but not always talked about. The abuse can be more commonly towards the wife, from the husband. It can also be the other way around, from the wife and directed towards the husband.
A spouse in this situation may feel trapped and as though they have no available resources. Depending on the situation, there are many resources to help the abused spouse. If there is no family to help, there are shelters for abused and battered women and no questions are asked. Resources for abused men are much less known.
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Emotional abuse is often minimized, yet it can leave deep and lasting scars.
Domestic abuse , also known asspousal abuse, occurs when one person in an intimate relationship or marriage tries to dominate and control the other person. Domestic abuse that includes physical violence is called domestic violence .
Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser doesn’t “play fair.” Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under his or her thumb. Your abuser may also threaten you, hurt you, or hurt those around you.
Domestic violence and abuse does not discriminate. It happens among heterosexual couples and in same-sex partnerships. It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels.
And while women are more commonly victimized, men are also abused—especially verbally and emotionally. The bottom line is that abusive behavior is never acceptable, whether it’s coming from a man, a woman, a teenager, or an older adult. You deserve to feel valued, respected, and safe."

How does it affect the family nucleus?
When fake love has made you wane,
your heart´s bled ´till the last drop
nurturing its roots would be now insane
as you´d surely reap a malignant crop
Brushes turned to fists tainted with dark,
ripping down a canvas with a facial frame
art becomes a cruel and damaging lark
the artist´s muse is a shameless shame
Dreading a reprise of the same scene
a director´s cut not excluding demise
aching soul rebels from an act obscene
screenplay describing a lethal disguise
Cowardice dons a mannish facade
gifting her a swag of one stony flower
stanzas of twinging, laconic ballade
appalling display at the eleventh hour
In the final act while the curtains fall
no round of applause, impending boycott
courageously she keeps standing tall
bravery is king, unkind love is not
This is dedicated to all those sisters around the world
who have been victims of asspousal abuse
Warmest hugs and infinite heavenly blessings,
I LOVE YOU ALL,
