Eternal Sleep

©

Published: October 2007

A burning passion,
An internal rage,
A wounded animal
Chained in a cage.

Purplish bruises
Outlined her smooth skin.
She cowered, afraid,
As the pain burned within.

A fist to her ribs,
Cold words in her ear.
Eyes dark and distant
Held unyielding fear.

Shoved and hit hard,
Bruised bones oh so frail.
The dark abyss
Of emotional hell.

Weakened knees gave way
As she fell to weep
And closed her eyes
Praying for eternal sleep.
