“The Silent Killer”

Published May 12, 2012 by chellebooker

Tho it may seem loud it’s not:

Tho you may see the marks and bruises they say nothing
Tho you may hear the bumps and thumps still nothing is said

Excuses are made
“I know the bad things he do to me are my fault”
“He had a bad day, I should have left him alone”
Lies are told
“He will never do it again”
“It only happened once”
The truth is hidden behind fairy tales
Fairy tales that are made up in the mind of the one who can’t speak the words for the truth is to embarrassing
To embarrassed to seek the help that is needed
To emabarrassed to admitt that there is a problem

So you take all the blame on yourself because in your eyes it’s all your fault; he did nothing wrong
You rationalize every hit, every verbal abuse, every mental abuse
Not truly knowing the effect that it has on you
You question yourself as a woman and you ask yourself “What did I do to make him hate me so much”
“Maybe if I had gave him better sex, or even sucked him off a little longer; maybe if I had stopped telling him No and started saying Yes it wouldn’t have happened”
“Maybe if I had shut up and not tallked back to him he wouldn’t have hit me in my mouth”

Maybe, Maybe, Maybe is all you can think to say right now as you lay there not knowing if you’re gonna make it or not, but praying that death overtakes you because you don’t know how to leave but yet you don’t wanna stay.

You’re wondering now why didn’t anyone see so they could have rescued you;
but everyone did see yet you chose to make up lie after lie because you were to embarrassed

Abuse The Silent Killer that so many women refuse to do anything about because they’re to scared or embarrassed to seek the help they need.

Not fully understanding your worth you stay because you’ve been abused all your life and you feel this is love

Not fully understanding that love is not suppose to hurt but heal
Not fully understanding that love is not jealous it’s caring
Not fully understanding that love is kind, and sweet with no strings attached

The Silent Killer: ABUSE
We have to come together and stop the cycle because as long as the abused feels they have no safe haven
They will stay til it’s to late. They will continue to hide behind the make-up and maasquerade mask
They will continue to make up lies and cover for the abuser
They will continue to not know their self worth as a person
They will continue all these things and more until they can’t do anything but lay there and die.
