Desserts is stressed backward

Look at those cushions, they are not straight. The dust on this coffee table is inches thick. Clean it up now you lazy bitch you know mess is something I hate. Do it now go move you make me feel sick. Don’t stand there staring as if you were thick.

The kids have wrecked the bathroom,  move your arse and sort them now. I don’t give a damn about your aching head. Where is my dinner I have been at work all day, have  you even heard a  word I have said.

desserts is stressed backwards.

What have you been doing, out with friends all day, go on, what nothing to say. A man slaves away at work it is your job to keep  house and not shirk. Look at you, you are not the girl I married she was bright and happy and full of life , such a sexy sight.

Where is my blue shirt and there is a hole in my socks , look at you, your going grey where are those flaxen locks. I’ll be late tonight don’t wait up , why, I going out for a beer,  dear!

BANG! Where’s the cereal Mum, where’s the milk where’s my homework where’s my new scarf of silk.

Take your lunch take your bus fares there’s your homework on the stairs. I have no idea where your scarf is get a move on your bus goes in five  minutes and a half!

BANG! Thank God they’ve gone peace at last , Lets just take a few minutes and hope this throbbing headache will pass. Put washing out to dry , OH! no that’s he best shirt he’ll be mad .

I had enough this is just too much. Sod the washing sod the shopping sod the house I’m going clothes shopping. New shoes new dress new car? I am off now and I’ll go far. I teach him to call me a lazy bitch . No more cooking  no more cleaning the hoover I can ditch! This worm has finally turned I have taken too much the old life I will just burn.

BANG the house shakes I leave for the last time I have had enough I going to live for me, is that such a crime . The kids are older I’ll write them in time they know I love them they know they are mine. I can’t stay with their father he is an ignorant swine.

    I didn’t know that desserts was stressed spelled backwards. Very interesting. It’s terrible that there are moms out there who actually have that type of life. It helps to remind me that I should always appreciate my mom because she does work hard and the work that she does is important. I liked the little rhyming parts you threw in here and there. “beer” and “dear”. “mine” and “swine”. Great poem. If you haven’t read it yet I posted a poem on my blog that my mother wrote me called “Path of Love”. Read it if you have time; it’s very beautiful.

      I am going to read your Mothers poem in a minute, I am really looking forward to seeing it. As to Desserts, there is more than one way to abuse a person. I was trying to portray mental abuse, which I think you picked up on. It is every bit as nasty as physical abuse . There are no scars to see only the mental ones which can cripple you for the remainder of your life. Mothers being mothers they rarely leave as the poor woman in the poem did but I have written so many hopeless poems I wanted to finish one on a brave and hopeful note. ..Hope for the Hopeless. willow

    Thank you , as I said above I wanted to portray mental abuse in a marriage and end on a brave hopeful note. I know for a fact it does not usually end that way but for once I decided to show hope and bravery.
