Link  to  Rules  and Prompts

Here we  are on Day 5, what  shall I  blog  about  today? The  bad  side of  love. It is  not  love  really  it is  an addiction. The  woman in  my poem ( a  revamp of  one  I  wrote four  years  ago)  is married  to  a bully, womanising   control freak , she  does  not realise  she is  the  strong one  I  appeal  to her because  of  love  for her  to have  courage  and  brake  the  Hidden  Chains.

 

What do you see lady in blue,

Those watchful eyes what do they view,

Why so tight lipped are you.

I can see you are stressed just look at you,

Leaning forward your hands are tense

Your whole demeanour cries self defence.

 

Such a lovely dress but something is wrong

Why not short sleeves and with your legs it is way too long.

Your husband is at the bar

You sit and watch him from afar.

He likes a shapely young body a weakness for a pretty face

He is not worried if you see. Such a shit he is a disgrace.

 

You should not worry , you should not care,

You still have your girlish figure and your flame red hair,

Your eyes are still that glorious blue

You have hardly changed since he married you.

 

It is sad his words have worn you down ,

He has taken your smile and stretched it into a frown.

He has pointed out your flaws too often and criticized you so much

His shouted put downs have not been forgotten  you cringe  at  his  touch.

Every time he pushes you too far

He buys you a pretty trinket like your amber necklace or a car.

He thinks if he showers you with gifts you will forget the scars.

 

Take some strength girl don’t keep caving in .You are the stronger one, you have  strength of character. Much more than him, truth be known he has none. He is just a show off and a bully, he is a coward inside. What kind of man is it that feels big when he makes you cry.He is the one who would fall apart if you left so please lady in the blue dress find smile don’t look so bereaved.

    That is being brave many just stay because they have been convinced that they are not capable of anything else. xxx
