Eternal Sleep

Poem by Stephanie Copus

A burning passion of internal rage
A wounded animal, chained in a cage
Purplish bruises, outlined her smooth skin
She cowered afraid, as pain burned within
A fist to her ribs, cold words to her ear
Eyes dark and distant with unyeilding fear
Shoved and hit hard, bruised bones so frail
It's dark abyss of emotional hell
Weakened knees gave way as she fell to weep
And closed her eyes, praying eternal sleep
