Why so twitchy?

Why is little mouse so twitchy ?

She seems so distracted and very itchy.

She snapping , offhand  and even bitchy!


Little mouse is tired, stressed  and unwell

Not wanting to make a slip and unleash hell.

So she is hiding in the shadows for a spell.


Don’t scratch your back ,or your legs, it shows

Little mouse, he has seem the scars, he knows.

Ugly, they are ugly but the need to do it just grows.


Today it was a cup you broke

Last week a glass dish, nothing bespoke

But enough to cause trouble leaving little mouse loosing hope?


Little mouse hates the shouting

The banging around, the pouting.

Not knowing why or when, always herself doubting.


She knows there are reasons for the raving

She feels there is something there worth saving

But can she survive the daily mental flaying.




So why is little mouse so twitchy ?

She seems so distracted and very  itchy.

She snapping , offhand and  even bitchy!


He can be so very nice and kind

You need to keep that in mind.

Which of you needs to change

Oh! it all so sad and  so strange.

    Many years ago, I spent four years in the police force – often attending to domestic violence cases.

    Sad and horrible – the women mostly holding out hope and grasp at straws. The cycle repeats – he beats, makes up, great sex – quiets down, then it starts again.

    Poor little mousies of the world – so sad.

      Yes Eric, I do feel so sorry for those little mice too. But I was referring to those suffering from mental abuse. Being ground down and mentally knocked back and and bullied every day. The cuts and scratches I referred to are self inflicted , her only defense, her one thing she has power over . These are the quiet ones who smile and carry one but their eyes belie their mouths. Have a good day and thank you for reading!!

    Oh, looks like I missed the ‘mental abuse’ aspect – I do apologise for the oversight.

    If I might share. During those domestic violence cases – I also noticed the emotional abuse inflicted by both spouses on one another. The man lashes out and is arrested. But the woman who provokes – gets away scot free as the law does not recognise emotional violence.

    I’m not for a moment defending violent physically abusive men – there is no excuse for this! But both men and women can be victims of emotional violence.

    However, I am no expert but was only a cop —- so, I’m probably wrong in my assessment.

      Yes Eric I do see what you are saying . Also I know that some women physically and mentally abuse their partners. It is often so much harder for a man who maybe twice the size of his partner to admit that she is terrorizing and abusing him! Why are we human’s so evil to each other. We all need to help each other and accept that all is not always just as it appears! …. you may not of been wrong at all. sadly nothing is ever black or white. xx
