I got flowers today

Someone sent this to me today. Usually, I delete all my forwards, but I feel very strongly about domestic violence, so of course, I had to put it up.

We had our first argument last night, and he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me. I know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today. It wasn't our anniversary or any other special day.

Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me. It seemed like a nightmare, I couldn't believe it was real. I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over. I know he must be sorry because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today, and it wasn't mother's day or any other special day.

Last night, he beat me up again, it was much worse than all the other times. If I leave him, what will I do? How will I take care of my kids? What about money? I'm afraid of him and scared to leave. But I know he must be sorry because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today.

Today was a very special day. It was the day of my funeral! Last night, he finally killed me. He beat me to death. If only I had gathered enough courage to leave him, I would not have gotten flowers today......


  1. hmmm...hmmm..this surely got me thinking...

    We women need to stand up for themselves.

    May God help us all

    Thanks for sharing

  2. Beating up a woman is so UNCOOL, whether a stranger or friend!

  3. Domestic Violence.....This is a very powerful email - heartbreaking but also a word for the wise i think

  4. flowers huh.
    like andre 3000 said, 'roses really smell like poooo..'
    now she's manure for those bloody flowers.

  5. I had tears in my eyes after reading this to think that this is someone eleses reality. Its d truth, women always tink its ok to be given a present after some1 has panel beated d shit out of them. ITS NOT RIGHT!!!!! I could go on and on about my anger to such r/ships both physical and emotional but its d individual dat has to make d decision to say ENUF IS ENUF!! Fantastic poem.

    It always gets worse, doesn't it, and for some reason, some women can never walk away.
