Strong

 

 

same routine each day
tip toe through life to avoid
evoking anger

 

never knowing cause
for his violent manner
rationalizing

 

blaming self only
feeling trapped with no escape
accepting treatment

 

then things went too far
bruised and beaten savagely
almost can’t get up

 

waking up with pain
realizing it’s not her fault
she packs bag and leaves

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fairy

 

 

beware of danger
look into faery’s eyes, trance
evil intentions

 

avoid piercing glare
once eyes meet faery’s, despair
consciousness soon lost

 

afterwards a haze
never same person again
losing inner glow
