She loved him to death

A young mother who is a victim of domestic violenceALTHEA MASI

It is a sad thing to see most of my Papua New Guinean sisters submit to domestic violence, a submission that often lead to their death. Most often they want to get out of the relationship but it’s fear and shame that keeps them loyal to a violent husband. I just hope that soon the government will make strong laws that encourage law and order and police intervention into family affairs, especially if there is evidence of domestic violence or child abuse - AM

He had her
Yet wanted more
He married her
Yet entertained his mistresses
But she still loved him

He slapped her
He punched her
He kicked her
He beats her up so bad
Like it don’t hurt
Yet she loved him

He treated her like a gadget 
No life!
No feelings! 
No worth! 
Just something he could use
Yet she loved him

He enslaved her
He cursed her
He defeated her

He mistreated her
She was gone
She loved him to her death
