2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

had a "wife" but couldn't keep her
she tried to give him all her love
but all he did was hit and shove
her, and didn't seem to hear her cries
or see the tears fall from her eyes
he only saw what he wanted to seee
which was everything she couldn't be,
in her eyes, he sees fear dance
and knowing it's his only chance
he strikes her down with all his power
and regains strength from seeing her cower
she knows shes getting stripped to the core
because her heart can't take much more
she watches the blood from her wrist seep
and thinks of the promises she couldn't keep
not knowing when the end will arrive
she just keeps wishing she wasn't alive
yet everytime she opens her eyes
her judgement is clouded by his lies,
understanding it may be considered a sin
she grabs a knife and plunges it in
coming from her a river of blood
just enough to almost flood
away her forgotten agony and sorrow
she closes her eyes never glimpsing tomorrow.
