A domestic violence survivor is urging other victims "not to tolerate abuse" by singing about her own experience.

In the emotional video shared on the Facebook page National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Darrian Amaker shares her story from her hospital bed following a domestic abuse attack.

"I don't generally record videos of myself but it was the only thing I wanted to do in the hospital. I insisted - it felt important and a small triumph to make something, salvage anything from my shipwrecked heart," she wrote in the post accompanying the video.

She then goes on to share how after this past Thanksgiving, her "Love went straight psychotic and beat me brutally for 10 hours. He had planned it out; I was supposed to die.

"I survived or escaped, whatever you want to call it, and spent four days in the hospital, eyes swollen shut, wondering why, wondering why."

With visible bruises and swollen eyes, she adds that he will be formally charged and facing "many years as a prisoner".

"I asked my doctor why I look different in the mirror, assuming it's a psychological consequence of savagery," she adds in the post.

"Softly she remarked that all of my bones are bruised, quarter-inch ridges that I can feel - my face is different, it's one-half inch wider now."
