verbal diarrhea

scarred

for life

she was….

not from

the burns inflicted

by an archaic kitchen stove

which quietly

became her life…

or those instances

of physical abuse

levied against her

by her drunken husband

but by a barrage

of verbal diarrhea,

sprayed from

his foul mouth,

each stinging word

sharper than any sword
