She fell for his charm,
Exposing herself to his harm, Oblivious to the high voltage danger,

That the damage could arrange. She looked deep inside the invisible thin scarred line,
Determined she would find her place,

Somewhere she could call her space.

She wanted him all to herself, Her desire made her scare herself. He was finally hers to hold,
But he claimed her along with his pride,

Misplacing bruises and battered proof,

Sending silent tears streaming down her angel made face. Devouring desire made it's case, Now there's no way she can escape this pain.

It's hard to breathe in her darkened cage,

Her heart continues to break with the start of a new day,
She must escape this world of pain,

And let the rain wash away all the images he made.

She's no longer determined to find her place,

She only struggles to forget his name.

In her world of disappointment and shame,

She must live with the scars that remain,

Searching frantically for a better place,

In which she can call her new space.

This is a very good poem. I can relate. I love it! It's sad though.
