Domestic Violence

Contributed by waynster on Wednesday, 27th December 2017 @ 04:52:10 AM in AEST
Topic: oops

Argue or not to argue
sometimes the stimulation is hard to beat
Even though you want to back off
but someone keeps poking at you in repeat

I often ask why it is
that people just donít know when to stop
They just keep poking you with words
until your mean side just goes pop

Then you spew words of hate
words meant to degrade
Still wanting to turn your cheek
but their spiteful words just donít fade

Their strong hateful desire
it burns them because they are weak inside
You are pushed to the limit with their hate
now you turn the tide

You back them into a corner
because your words are stronger at best
You frighten them to the core
you explode with aggression with no rest

Only when you have been threatened
the reality of it all shines from the blade of a knife
How could all of this be happening
especially between you and your wife

To argue or not
usually no point in it at all
The ending of it may not be nice
the weak will always fall

Hurt feelings and sadness
they will dwell deep inside
To turn the cheek and walk away
is the best way to turn the tide

It/'/s hard to turn away from an argument when the other person just keeps at you. It can be infuriating. Good write
