    dotsPillow of Feardots
    -------------------------------------------


    Just a kid growing up,
    house, white picket fence,
    neighbors all about.

    No one hears,
    the cries and screams
    then muted sounds of a
    battered mothers
    pain?

    Someone does,
    from under a pillow
    muffled sounds
    of a child weeping
    and afraid.

    Wanting to help,
    to make it stop.
    Frozen in time,
    not wanting to hear,
    my dear Mother's tears.

    I lay under my pillow
    of fear.

      This is neat. I'm going to read over this like several times before a full comment. (I almost always have to do that, especially with stuff I like in particular. )

      Sorry to hear of your anguish. Hope it hasn't ruined your life. You've expressed the "pain" suffered by more than just the victim, but by children who witness it, and you've done it in an original way. This is different than the usual "abuse" poem. You give it from the child's point of view, and show how they suffer too. Your "Pillow of Fear" becomes a symbol, for the quiet endurance of pain-filled children's hearts.

    Favorite lines:

    "Someone does,
    from under a pillow"

    This is the center of this poem. The witness is terrified too. The pain spreads to all involved. A very fresh approach to showing the nastiness that is spousal abuse. Thanks for posting it.

      I think that this was well written.
    you really portrayed the feelings well, very sad.
    I really liked how you used the pillow as the basis for the write, very creative as silentdeath said.

    'No one hears,
    the cries and screams
    then muted sounds of a
    battered motherís
    pain?'

    I think this was the best part..
    you talk about a normal place with people all around, yet no one can hear?
    It is sad.

    You did a great job on this, very touching.
    take care

      I cannot even imagine the pain.

    You primarily use the auditory sense, and I think that focusing on hearing, and nothing else, really brought out a strength and an emotion in this poem.

      this was a good topic that really doens't get enough attention for how much of a problem it is...my ex-BF's dad was pretty much the same way...:( only he got in the way...when he was 4. but this was very descriptive and full of emotion and imagry...good use of the whole pillow idea...very creative:) keep writing.
    good write.
    Peace
