Life Long Torment

His fist against my face sent me down to the floor
My head, my body, my heart was all so sore
How could he do this to me?
I love him dearly, could he not see?

I should have seen it coming
The way he changed from being so loving
To becoming a repulsive, angry being
Consistently saying hateful words that were so demeaning

What frightened me most at that very moment
Was the realization of my life long torment
Of being a wife of an abusive husband
