    Dark sunglasses hide the traces
    from last nights little altercation
    she wears bloodshot eyes and purple bruises
    her punishment for his inebriation

    Goin' to work, dreamin' up a story
    something that they'll all believe
    knowing she'll see the same look in their eyes
    she knows who she tries to deceive

    There's a chill in the air as she opens the door
    he looks at her face and he smiles
    hands her some flowers, kisses her cheek
    promises the world for a while

    Two weeks later she's lying in bed
    Livin' in a world full of pain
    tubes goin' haywire, pulse barely there
    she swears it won't happen again

    Headlines scream, "Wife in jail,
    for murder in the first degree."
    now she sits in a cell, counting the days
    'til at last she'll be finally free

    she will realize that true love begins with God and self...

    and then she will never again accept nothing less than true love.
    however for some xperience is the best teacher... i'll say it's the best "reacher"

    this was life.
    well done K,

    jh.

    Cindy..I agree..it's so easy to make a judgement looking from the outside in...but to look from the opposite direction is not so easy..living it is only a matter of time before you fall to the ground or rise above..thanks for the words...

    j'hiah..thanks for your words as always and I like your line..and you're right if we love ourselves then others will also love us..

    Rich...your support is once more, as always, much appreciated

    Sherykah..I never thought of it in that light...but it's a logical conclusion isn't it..thanks for the read...

    You bring the scenes to life like no other, my sister. This is the story of too many of our sisters...too many....trading one sentence for another....praying, hoping ...waiting for their sweet release.

    thank you for this
