Trapped In Misery!
She didn’t know how to escape and run
Her heart wouldn’t let her flee
Battered and bruised she became
Addicted to pain and misery
She nurtured and embraced her life as she knew it to be
Dying a slow death captivated by love’s fallacy
The imaginary tale, the one she wanted to believe
That love sometimes hurt; her soul she so deceived
Drifting into a fantasy, a world of make believe
Her bruises healed and left no scars, is what she chose to receive;
Her world conceived in physical turmoil, languished in injury
As days, months and time passed on she’s hoping for change
10 years in and things remained the same
Shattered beyond the external beatings she endured
Wounds split, by his violent countenance, her spirit hooked and lured
One day things would change her soul and mind she falsely reassured.
Hoping for strength to maintain her perception blurred and obscured
Believing that his internal wounds could be one day cured,
Nursing his faults, cradling his vicious allure
Praying that God will intervene and create a divine detour!
She believed that Love is real, change can happen, things can be made pure!
