Pain Nevermore

Fists flying through the air
so much pain to bear
wishing they would disarm
and no longer cause harm
bruises everywhere
thinking no one cares
crying at night
hurt and alone
never knowing the light
or having a real home
cowering scared in the closet
hoping not to be found
knowing when he comes home drunk
to just lay there and take it
blows striking their target
like a heat seeking missile

wishing to be dead
so this agony will end
deepest darkest fear
to not get out of here
shedding many tears
stumbling in the hall
crashing of a lamp
and my anger flares
saying a secret prayer
that I may soon be sent
to my own cold damp tomb
is his behavior my doom?
will the cycle end with him
or will I too be a threat?
is my destiny already set?
NO I wont let that happen
I'm not like him
my life may be grim
but i refuse to abuse
no one but me can choose
these feelings confuse
Anger Fear Disappointment
all swirling round inside
they are no longer willing to hide
they need an exit
razor slick and smooth
drawing a deep crimson groove
death sickly sweet
as I soon fall asleep
Nevermore to wake again
Nevermore to wake again
