    Tomorrow will be better
    Today I'm still mourning
    For now I'll write a letter
    Joy comes in the morning

    Heartfelt write....reality is hard to accept especially with a situation like this, you've delivered a great poem that's a reality check for some of us, thanks for sharing MHenry

    Ditto! I witnessed this in real life. He abuse the woman so much they separated. He went just to talk. She shot and killed him. Just like that. Toxic relationships are no good for no one. Touchy subject. Thanks for sharing. P.s. But in the end no one really wins.

    Well damn, she shot him in the brain. Abused to the limit, but now she must defend herself from the law.
    So she still if not free of him.

    I am not an advocate of guns at all, but I am an advocate of self-defense. I am angered when people hurt other people, no matter how they choose to do it. In poems, you can make sure the good guy wins. Thanks for reading and for your constant support

    Hi, RLW, It is a sore subject, and one that many in this forum have poeticized about. I thought I would give my two cents.
    I think the zinger at the end can save a work that is otherwise a little lacking! Thanks for reading and enjoying.

    I may have to borrow this one for my book. Lol. I love the ending.

    But seriously, this happens too often and abuse is NEVER ok. Most of the times, the abused are the ones that end up dead.

    Great job on writing this MH.

    You are good at the zinger at the end MHenry! And although I'd like to express surprised relief - the subject matter is so truly serious that the question remains if tomorrow will be better - or only a different sort of terrible? Great verse though. You continue to deliver insightful work.

    ​Tomorrow Will Be Better

    Tomorrow Will Be Better

    With barbed and lashing tongue
    He left scars upon her heart
    Deep and painful fissures
    That ripped her world apart

    With knuckles harsh and bitter
    He broke bones and shattered teeth
    But still she would not leave him
    For she held the firm belief

    Tomorrow will be better

    And every day he hurt her
    She sang the same refrain
    Tomorrow will be better
    Until she shot him in the brain
Working...
