About the Poem

This poem is about a woman, maybe a wife of an inconsiderate person, who had already suffered a lot. She had been serving her husband without fail, but still she was treated as badly as a slave. It is quite straight forward because I want people to feel and have mercy for her. It ends up with a tragedy - one which actually changes her life.

Now No More

I'm an ugly, worthless creature...
I lie down and think
Do I fit him?
He pulled me,
pushed me, anytime, anywhere...
My pain,
everywhere, nowhere
to hide.

Please stop, no more yelling...
no more shouting, no more swearing...
My ear hurts, my heart bleeds,
my life sinks.

I stand tall, wipe my tears, shut my eyes,
stare at his angry eyes, smiling -
a cynical one indeed.
I gather strength, Oh my, a powerful one
so far beyond my expectation.

Red fluid oozes everywhere.
There and then he pleads, pleads, pleads again.
I whisper to the breeze,
Now no more shouting,
now no more yelling,
now no more beating,

Let me rest in peace.
Let me bury the bitter memories.
Let me sing gracefully.
Let me and let me,
I can now fly...
I'm sorry, my love...
