A Reason



She looked around the house
All was clean and spotless
She knew he’d be home soon
By then she’d be out in the darkness
He would not know how
Nor know where
But he would guess why
She was no longer there
He could scream
He could shout
He could curse
And swear out loud
But none of it
Would bring her back
As for the very first time
She would not crack
What took her so long
How could she never say no
It was because he loved her
And she always said so
But now there was a change
There was someone else
And every time he hit her
That was all she felt
She could not bring this baby
Into this life that was hell
And hence her final decision
To leave — a final farewell

    I like this one. Very easy to read with simple words and yet such a powerful theme.

    It’s a hard thing to do I hear to pick up your things and leave, much so with a little life in your belly. I like the strength you have given ‘her’.
