"Cheer up child" she said But mum, how can I cheer up. For I am drowning in an ocean of sadness. For my demons have learnt how to swim. There's no lifeline out of this. My Prince Charming has become my worst nightmare. There's no way out of this mum. His once subtle kisses, had become purple bruises. His once charming words, bullets in my ear. I can't do anything mum.
