No More



It happens behind closed doors,
Hardly ever happens in front of witnesses,
               One is too scared to talk,
The other thinking, they are untouchable,
Mentally and physically abused,
Isolated from friends and family.
Being told “you have nowhere to go”,
“No one will help you no one wants you”, Do not listen that is a fallacy,
Find the courage, find the strength,
   Call 999, reach out to a neighbour,
There are places to go, people who will help you.
It’s mostly women that we hear about,
Men are abused to,
Not reported because of fear and embarrassment,
They need our help too,
I’ve read about those who don’t survive, Don’t be one of them.

I'm 56 single mum to two 20+ lads. I used to craft and make jewellery but due to rheumatoid arthritis I had to stop. In 2020 when i was forced to stay home due to being immunosuppressive I was bored. One night having flash backs about the day I had to put my dog to sleep I started getting all these thoughts so wrote it down and it became my first freestyle poem and those words still come. I have my book simple poetry waiting to be published as an ebook on kobo and I am nearly finished with my second one simply poetry. I love horror movies especially zombie, I also believe in the spirit world and used to read tarot cards. I love dogs and have a Jack Russell called butch. more…
