What an emotive poem, and likewise the prose underneath, RGSTAR. The cry of inner thoughts is powerful, and the mental images are graphic. I read this today, on what is being celebrated as International Women's Day, and feel so affected. When your words are applied to the millions of plagued, tortured, and suffering ladies all over the world today, I also recognise their importance. Thank you for writing this and sharing it with us.

A Broken Flowers is a perfect metaphor RG. This is a sad and heart breaking poem to read and to realize the message is not fiction but real life for some women.
You truly have the heart and voice of a poet who speaks on topics where few would dare to tread.
A amazing poem, heartfelt and heartbreaking.
Well done my friend.

Blessings
Janet

ROY!
A slap to the senses as words cut deep. I don't think I have ever sighed as much in such a short period... and as my souls cried and hollowed out as I delved into the power of these masterful words and verses as they entered my eternal soul... okay, make that, as now I weep reading what this has awaken in my memory and... my thoughts to be.

You my Brother... a 'Man' amongst men, it is 'Man' such as you that makes our species sound and look half good considering the stains our lot has, is and will cause.

As archaic as I may sound... I am duty bound to protect and nurture the givers of life and love... it is in my contract. Maybe because of the domestic violence I also witnessed growing up... yes, our lives do run parallel in so many instances, right down to my Mothers transition last year from cancer and the brain tumors that finally won the battle... it blows my mind and perception!

Thank you once more for sharing such a powerful piece of writing... you my Brother know how to enter a persons soul... very special indeed! A 1%er... I have no doubt!

With our thoughts we create,
the knowledge of righteousness.
James.

An exceedingly well-written poem on one of the saddest topics there is to read about. Women (and children and some men) have been abused since for ages. It is very sad and your words make my heart ache for those who barely or don't escape.
I have to say your second stanza is very painful to read as this is still an ongoing practise in some countries. It is very sad. Awareness and standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves is a step in the right direction. Leading by example another. Bless you, for such a beautiful and poignant piece.

This is a very hard work for me to review, RGSTAR. I understand the sentiment and the goal of the piece. But I must admit it is a bit over my head. Sometimes a poem becomes a bit too abstract or ethereal in its words or expressions, and then I tend to get a bit lost. I can only presume that the problem is much more my inability to comprehend then your ability to compose. By the way, I did not listen to the audio. Generally speaking, a good poetic work does not require audio or visual enhancements. Audio usually just makes it hard for me to concentrate on the verses.

    Thank you for looking I on this. Not difficult really, just the varying degrees of abuse for different reasons.
    Best wishes.

RG*Star* I'm sure you are getting many six s*t*a*r*s for this witness piece.
I thought at first you were writing about Barb's sad life. Her husband abused
Barb and their children. I have a friend whose Mom abused her as a child due
to jealousy. Life can hurt when people harm us no matter the age. I like your sound effects. Good photo image. Well done. I hope that you are healed and well as your soul prospers. I like hearing your voice, my s*t*a*r friend. I pray this touches hearts and stops abuse. flylikeaneagle

Hello RG,
A difficult subject, but one that needs a voice
and yours is a strong one
Written with compassion and sensitivity
while maintaining poetics in the rhymed pairs
The last stanza stood out for me
for its descriptive imagery
Well done
RS

Excellent Poem! The poem is heart felt, sad and thought provoking. Thank you
