A million times he told her he 'loved' her.
She responded with the usual response
Believing she was actually in love with this man.
All her friends who knew him like a besfriend,
Warned her he'd loose it one of these days.
She simply shruggd it off not caring what they said
Because he was the one who had her heart.
Then one night after a party, he called her to
Come pick him up for he was to drunk to drive.
When she finally showed up 20 minutes late,
He got in the car and started screaming at her.
When she tried to respond, he slapped her across
The face and told her to shut up.
She quickly learned not to talk back to him when he was in this mood.
Her body was lined with bruises, she had to wear
Longer clothing. She didnt want to leave him
Because she believed she could help him recover.
Deep down knowing she should leave and seek help,
She stayed with him, going through the pain.
One day when she was changing, her mom walked in
And quickly noticed the dark blue and fading yellow spots
All over her body.
Her mom started crying, asking what couldve whent wrong.
Not able to hold it inside any longer,
she told her mom all about it starting from the first dreadful night.
When she was finished her mother called the police and held her tight.
Now she's very careful about who she says she loves
And who she would do anything for.
She listens to her friends' warnings and her mom
Watches more closely to her daugters life
Don't ever let anyone take advantage of you
Its not right.
