BATTLE SCARS

She hides in her room most of the day

still sore from the night before

Knowing his mood could easilychange

she cant take the blows no more

She holds tightly to her tear stained pillow

hoping soon he would fall asleep

The liquor finally took control

as the knife sank in so deep

She thought about it long and hard

too scared to take the plunge

She`ll forever carry battle scares

but at least her victories won
