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?

Unkind Love

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 just loved your poem and it sure does hold true.
I have told one too many women I know, that love is not pain and you just summed it right up for me, thank you.

Loved your poem,.
I don't believe in Love ( relationship love) cos if you loved each other you wouldn't abuse the other person.
in most relationships in one way or the other there is abuse even if it wasn't meant its still there.

Domestic violence is antipathy to love and should be resisted at all costs. Good take - siva
