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
