    Survived

    You are the sound a slap makes
    Across a face
    The fist to a jaw
    A soft thud of a woman's frame
    Hitting the ground

    You are the apology
    The swear
    "I'm so sorry" the coo "I love you"
    The promise
    Never again

    Huddled in a corner now
    Moving closer to you
    She listens
    Wanting to believe
    In fairy tales

    How can she know
    All the years spent trying to please
    Would pass by
    Leaving nothing but a shell
    And nothing to show

    Her dreams are thunderous
    Lightening bolts of the sounds of you
    A cattle prod to her soul
    Remember! REMEMBER!
    Let no one close
