“She’ll come slowly rising, on the air”…

~

She woke up one morning…
Her head just screamed enough…
Time to make the right decision…
No matter how hard or how tough…

She couldn’t take the beatings…
Or the controlling mental abuse…
The camel’s back was broken…
Last night left her so confused…

She should have seen it coming…
But he promised he had changed…
Said that he was better now…
Yet his anger was so inflamed…

Filled with unrelenting jealousy…
About a man she knew before…
It was all so dim and distant…
But her pleas he did ignore…

Left her cowering in a corner…
Nursing a broke and bloody nose…
His fist the lethal weapon…
Her face the target he chose…

She’s given so many chances…
Swallowed every single lie…
Proved her love many times over…
But now it’s time to say goodbye….

She knows she cannot leave him….
He’d track and hunt her down…
There is only one escape route….
And the knife lays on the ground…

He’s on the sofa sleeping…
She’s stood watching him dream…
In a flash her pent up anger…
Causes him to fucking scream…

The knife is now embedded…
Deep within his cold cold heart…
And the painful realisation…
Now wakes him with a start…

He will cause her pain no longer…
But her freedom comes at a price…
Turning the knife upon herself…
Her wrists she begins to slice…

She woke up that morning…
Her head knew what to do…
She made a tough decision…
Now the angels float into view…
