As she fell, she felt a searing pain

Her pride and her body slain

His words, his touch all hurt the same

She felt it was her words to blame

The children cried

Her will to fight had already died

She stood up slowly and ran away

She couldn't stand another day

Empty inside, emotions gone

Mommy's crying went on and on

Drained of blood

She'd survived the flood

Watching life from the outside

Though he said sorry, she knew he lied

He drank his feelings, while she drank hers

Numb and hazy, daily blurs.
