I see the sadness in her eyes
Everytime she tries to laugh
Or forces a smile
Stains from a thousand tears
Decorate her grief stricken face
She hesitates with every step
Shudders at the slightest touch
She's afraid and alone
Even though he's right next to her
The reason for all of this

Why does she stay?
What are those marks on his fists?
Her face is maimed
But inner beauty remains
He'll leave soon
And move on to another victim
And leave her to rot and decay
In her own darkness

She may despair
But all she needs
Is someone to say
"I'm here for you"
May the light of day
Pierce the clouds of her mind
And maybe her heart will open
To the joys of the world

I hope she spreads her wings
And soars in the sky
Through the clouds
Across the world
And even if someone
Were to take her wings
And tear them apart
Feather by feather
You can still fly with broken wings
To a new day
With hope and will
Stay safe...
