My mind is blank
My heart is beating
My body is limp
From somewhere im bleeding?!
My head is pounding
Or on it you are
I cant tell the difference
Just see a little light thats too far
My eyes are shut tight
Cuz im scared to see
That look on your face
While your hands are on me
Your demons are present
Theyre making you do this
I saw them in your eyes
Can feel them in your fists
My voice is gone now
My mouth and throat dry
All senses have abandoned me
Left with the tears that I cried
Yours are gone too
You no longer even yell
You no longer look human
I think my earth turned to hell
You no longer ask me questions
You never even cared to know
You just keep causing me pain
Going blow for blow
I feel my light fading
And still I cant speak
To even tell you that im sorry
To beg for you to stop please
Now the hits are getting softer
At least thats what I think
I cant feel much now
But to the ground I just sank
At least I know I tried
Tried to get you to calm down
Tried to tell you it wasnt true
Tried to protect the mound
That was growing in my stomach
That we both planted there
That you were so happy about
But now about don’t even care
Tried to remind you that its ours
That its what we both wanted
That you just took it away
But you dont seem daunted
Maybe you dont know
Or just arent thinking
Maybe you dont remember
Your brain and body arent linking
Because through my own I see your tears
I see that youre pained
Ive seen it for years
But for me
You never felt sorry
Never cared that I was fading
Didnt notice me departing
From the life that I wanted
With you and our baby
Now we are both gone
Both our lights finally faded
And then you stop
Finally feel your point made
My body is all thats still here
And beside it you have laid
With all your anger subsided
You finally look at my face
You put your hand on my heart
Wait for my chest to raise
But it never does again
And you realize your mistake
You realize im gone
You see the lives you did take
And you start to cry again
But now its too late
You can not now take back
What eventually was my fate
