From across the room our eyes met such a beautiful smile and
Hello, my name is Bo, can I sit with you? Oh how I remember his
kind and gentle way. Held my hand and kissed me on the cheek,
told me how special I was… only wants to love and be with me.
How my heart soared. This love of my life, forever will the
love be real and we'll be a family. His thoughts sounded so
good and pure, he made me feel sure.
Said hello to old and new, spoke never to anyone that he never
knew. His eyes began to turn green, the monster, the evil
Slept with them his only words and than my face began to burn.
Though my words I love you sounded in the air only came pain
and despair. I'll be whatever you want me to be all long as you
stop hitting me.
I'm sorry, it's my fault you hit me, I provoked you I know.
Please love me still for you said no one else will.
Hit me till the blood dripped down my lip, I'm sorry it's my
fault dinner is late. Again you say you love and want
me….placing your hand upon me.
Now six feet under all I can see is dirt; my soul drifting
trying to get my body back.
Mom, dad, my children……….my life is gone.. Bo my love, you beat
me again because your socks weren't folded right.
I believed he'd never hit me again, believed when he said I
love you …even when he hit again.
As blood drained out of my body and take my last breath… it's
to late to get help, to late to get out.
But I love him I said; it's my fault…..I'm sorry I'm dead.
