    'I love you baby, I'll never leave you, no matter what.'
    Those where the words u said to me
    'I'll never hurt you, you will always be my Sunshine.'
    Why did you lie, you thought it wouldn't hurt?
    I see you in the streets and I flinch uncontrollably.
    What will you do to me today?

    You come over my house, we're alone.
    I kiss you and you hold me so lovingly.
    You won't hit me again I just know it
    It was an accident you apoligized.
    It's okay right?

    Then y do I feel so bad when I see the bruises on me
    When I have to cover up my arms where ur fingerprints r.
    This time you say you saw me with some guy
    I deny it and try to tell you, I love you and
    ONLY YOU!

    But then the slap comes, crisp and hard.
    I grab my cheek and hide in the corner
    But you keep coming after me
    I try to cover my face and head but
    you just scream YOU THINK I CAN'T GET YOU!
    I beg you to stop I tell you you're just not thinking straight.
    Then the next blow comes, this time you yank my arm
    and throw me against the wall
    I sag to the floor
    you punch me in the mouth and kick me in the ribs.
    I double over in pain as blood runs out of my mouth
    Then mercifully I black out

    When I wake up I'm in a tub of cool water.
    'Baby are u all right, I'm so sorry I never ment to hurt you.'
    'I just don't want to loose you to anyone.'
    You carried me out of the tub and gently dried
    My broken and bruised body.

    I cry and you say 'baby don't cry its gonna b alright.'
    You hand me another stuffed animal and beg me to forgive you.
    I curled up with the bear and look at all the others u've given me.
    Ten in total, one for everytime you beat me.
    I know I'll forgive you but the cycle must end.
    I wanna leave you but I can't
    'YOU'LL F%CKING KILL ME.'

    But life must go on, I'll pick up where we left off
    Still loving you and ignoring my mother and girlfriends pleas
    They say you're gonna take my life one day
    But hey for someone as weak as me who can't even leave
    It would be a sweet simple relief.



    R.I.P. Karee 8/13/05, I love you girl I just wish you had the strength to live.

    I'm sorry for your loss. So many women are in this same situation...either trying to cope with the beatings, or already gone. Bittersweet flow
