Your Voice - Marie Marshall (Poetry)

Updated: Oct 28, 2018

Marie Marshall's poem discusses the harshness and the love still present in abusive relationships, and how that there is always hope despite the negativity.


Your voice,

A yelling,

Like shooting bullets


I cover my face,

Open palms in defence


I welcome the

Sunken

Sunken

Sunken deep

Entangles in hand lines

Caught in the webbing,


I am alive but,

Once here aligned,

Now remnants reside

In my grasp.


It stings.


Broken mirror,

Pities the happy ever after,

Before we go endurant in our smiles.
