he see's me as a beauty,
I am a gem.
we stay in bed all day and make love,
I am his queen.
we argue over little things,
I am a bitch.
I am confined to the house because I am bruised,
I deserved it
he says he's sorry and he won't hit me again,
I am safe
he forces himself inside me while I scream and beg him to stop,
I can't say no
this is no life for me to live and no way for me to survive,
I am strong.
no more of this because I can do better for myself
I am leaving
if only I would have left long ago,
I can't leave
this pain from the beating is getting worse and he won't stop now,
I am numb
his eyes are gleaming in madness as he hacks at me with this knife,
I can feel it all
my mother cries as she buries her daughter
I was innocent
he's rotting in a cell in a dark dank prison,
I was avenged, too bad it was too late.
