How Stupid Can She Be? - Poem by Jessica Lyle

How stupid can she be? Knowing she needs to get away but her feet are cemented into the floor in front of him. Over and over her family and friends have told her he's no good for her. So why is he the only one she sees? She makes excuses and uses makeup and pretends everythings ok. She lies to herself and tells herself he will change. But night after night the bottle's in his hand and she's at his feet. When will this change. Noone changes and nothing is perfect. The pills, weed, alcohol, why can't he stop. The hands that's done so much pain, the mouth that tells her she's going nowhere. Someone save her please. She can't move. She ran out of lies, ran out of excuses, things are over the line and she sits and watches him do what he does. Her master won't let her go, the leash is choking her. She's close to disappearing from the whole world. His words paint pictures, that gives her nightmares. Every night in her own bed she cries and prays to whoever is out there. To help her, save her, let her free. How stupid can I be?
