she lied she lied to me for me , they , punched her on the nose her skull swollen choked her neck dug fingernails kicked her slapped her threw her on the floor she fought her world to save another and she didn't tell me for she knew i would break even when she lay on the floor , bleeding she thought of how to not hurt me and she tells me she is not strong they did this to her , for what ? just because she dared to love . sitting on the cold washroom floor , the sky is black today the black that seeps into your very soul the black that kills the black that you drown in the black that consumes you the black that becomes you her skin is bruised , her body hurt her head swollen , oh , how i wish with my whole soul that it could have been me without a mere second of hesitation would i not take a thousand times of this smiling , just so it doesn't happen to her my soul winces just at the thought of the marks on her beautiful body & soul . a laugh escapes my throat , a laugh at life , gave me my love , but with it the inability to save her from this . i promised to her i will not cry when she spoke of this and for the first time i failed with my promise . rid me of insomnia she said and she did but we both know our nights spent , thinking of the pain of the other , watching the hours tick by until finally sleep takes over . i wish i could hold her , kiss her bruises nurse her wounds talk her to sleep feed her with my hands heal her with my soul my love with her everywhere , forever , don't be scared i am not going anywhere wish we could be anywhere but here anywhere but here .
