BATTERED

Fantasies of the rich and famous

More, more, more?

How about the fantasies

Of the working poor?

Do abused victims

Fantasize?

Begin with hope and love

Only to morph into another

Abusive scenario

Because that is all they know?

Is it possible to imagine

A happily-ever-after ending?

What is the dialog like?

Loving, positive

Or angry and demeaning?

Is there no relief for the

Physically or mentally abused

Even in the imagination

In an alternate reality

Or is there a place

A private world of escape

From what is and what can be?

Fantasies

A self-mythology

To brave each day

Or night…
