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
