There is a girl that I know, that I can't help but adore
I feel for her a way, no ones made me feel before
She claims she wants a friend, only that and nothing more
But I know that's not the truth, and I just cannot ignore

Her blue eyes show an old time filled with torment and distress
Her smile tries in vain to hide a past she must suppress
She ran away to start again, her latest new address
But there's a home found in my heart, she knows she can possess

If only she tried to release the shackles and the chains
Locked to all past heartaches, all the troubles and the pains
Perhaps in time she'll see in me a love that she can gain
And within my caring shelter I'll protect her from the rain

In bad times it is hard to find a light that you can see
In truth she knows that in her heart she really does want me
And if she lets me be the one to make her life happy
Then I will make her love again and let her heart run free

Wow! Totally intense and emotional poem about battered men! It is not often talked about, but does exist quite often in our world. It is just as horrible a crime as battering a women - it's very offensive and wrong. Thank you for having the courage to write of this crime, it needs to come to light! RoseAnn
Pregnant with passion and pathos as the reality of a crime that is often swept under the rug is powerfully brought in to light. Well done my friend!
