How to Support a DV Victim...

(Originally titled - How To #NOMORE...)

From afar, they look fine

Like life is "just great"

Yet up close, in their eyes

You see a different state

Most don't see all the pain

That is hidden, enclosed

In a shell that is sealed

Only rarely exposed

To those who can see

Beyond, what is there

To crack through the surface

To prove that they care

To validate & listen

To what's NOT being said

To support if they choose to

Leave this horrible bed

That's been made by a choice

Not necessarily their own

But has been made, just the same

How could they have known?

The stranger lurking inside

The love of their life

How could they have missed

The impending strife?

One sees what they want

Sometimes, til it's too late

Choices are made,

Are they stuck in their fate?
