She didn't know, then too late

Poetry By: Shannan Browne

Girls, stay awake! One bruise, just one, walk away

She didn't know, then too late

Only six month ago in May

Her wedding was a merry day

Followed by sadness and pain

Showers of emotional rain

As liquid pain flooded her brain

Leaving behind a deathly stain

Alone, she had nowhere to hide

No thick skin to protect her hide

No place to run under cover

From him, her abusive lover

She didn't see his arrogance

During that blissful romance

Unaware of his vicious claws

She was blind to his many flaws

With many bruises black and blue

It was far too late she cried

Too late for her to make it stop

Lying beneath a funeral clock
