    I remember the first time
    Do you
    The house was a mess
    We knocked everything off the table
    I was hospitalized and found stable
    A busted lip, a fractered hip
    A black eye, a swollen thigh
    And all you had was my blood
    My lover
    My enemy
    I'm afraid of you
    Cause there's nothing I can do...
    To stop you
    Wait, wait
    Don't hit our son is in the other room
    Remember that night
    We had a fight
    You broke my water
    Cause I told you I wanted a daughter
    Remember the time I almost died
    Do you remember those nights
    The nights that I cried
    It wasn't always that way
    But I refuse to stay
    I'm leaving
    And I'm taking my son with me
    You can't stop me
    Don't try it
    Put your hands down
    Cause I'll stab you like Keke Wyatt
    And bury you underground
    So sit down and reminice
    Cause I'm going out of town
    And you're going to miss this chick
    You beat me for years
    Why? I don't know
    Was it a show
    If so I didn't enjoy it
    I'm not an animal
    It's not fair
    Remember the time you beat me with a chair
    Remember the time you put fire to my hair
    I do
    That's why I can't be with you

    Thank you for sharing. Hopefully, more of us will become more aware of how It affects not just those who endure domestic violence, but all who knows of it's presence in our community.
