Battered and bruised

when torment comes and all seems black, dig deeper within, you can claw back. For what is power, but given or taken. You can get out, don’t be mistaken. For you are strong, you’ll find the Will, to take your power when you’ve had your fill.

Behind the smile and the brushing it off,
A blot on the heart that won’t shake off.
I know it’s still pumping and flowing with blood
But it’s really not working,just as it should.
The stupid, the crazy the pushing around
Get it excited as it starts to pound.
It sounds like a drumroll being bashed with a stick,
I hope it stops, and I hope it’s real quick.
The power you have contorts my mind,
Making fantasies of death,seem so very kind.
Battered and bruised you done your best,
To control the girl, you loved more than the rest.
If this is love, then hatred I’ll take
Co’s the smile on my face, is really all fake.
I haven’t the strength, it’s nearly all gone
to pull me out, so I just carry on.
The pit of my stomach is swirling with rage,
An endangered species locked in a cage.
How can you love me, and treat me so?
How can I stay, not let you go?
Love is the word that binds us together,
Please dear lord, please not forever.
Sometime, I know, I have to get out.
Enough is enough is what I will shout.
Love, you can keep it, I’ll take my chances
I’ll learn to smile without the pretences
And Carry on and begin again, but not with you my bullying friend.
You’ll never find me, to hurt me again,
This love for you will continue to wain.
I will be strong, as strong as an ox
while you will hunt like the savage fox.
Your ugly inside is a cruel disguise,
Of the facade of the man on the outside!

Hi, I am a 50 something stay at home mother, grandmother and daughter of elderly (ish) parents. I do however, volunteer twice a week in a charity shop, mind grand children on occasion and of course do any other running around required by extended family. Prior to being a stay at home mum, I have worked at many different jobs, changed career a few times and gathered lots of stories along the way, which I hope you will enjoy as we begin our new relationship. I hope I will be able to entertain, engage and enlighten you, if only a small bit. Life is short, so lets have some fun. Looking forward to getting up and running (metaphorically speaking of course) as I have no intention of running anywhere! Perish the thought!! Thanks for stopping by, Carrie x
