She Looks Into The Mirror
Not Liking What She Sees
She Closes Her Eyes Tight
As She Falls Onto Her Knees

Bruises On Her Body
Scars She Cant Erase
Long Sleeves To Cover Her Arms
And Make-up To Cover Her Face

She Slowly Stands Up Again
Wiping Away Her Tears
Trying To Place Behind
What She's Been Hiding All These Years

Time To Face Another Day
Pretending Nothings Wrong
Inside Keeping Her Secret Hidden
Thats Shes Been Abused All Along

Lying Around The House
Counting The Minutes Until His Return Home
Dreading Each And Every Second
Wishing He Would Leave Her Alone

A Few Moments Later
She Hears Him Open Up The Door
Yelling And Screaming Her Name
She Falls Onto The Floor

He Finds Her On The Ground
And Picks Her Up By The Hair
She Screams For Him To Stop
But He Doesnt Seem To Care

He Tells Her To Shut Up
Then Smacks Her Across The Face
Beating On Her Over And Over
Her Heart Beating At A Rapid Pace

She Waits For It To End
Taking It All In Blow By Blow
Still He Does Not Cease
And His Anger Continues To Grow

Tears Flow Down Her Face
As The Numbing Pain Sets In
Trying So Hard To Get Away
But She Knows She Just Cant Win

Soon It Is Finally Over
As She Lay Lifeless On The Floor
No Longer Will She Feel Pain
And She Will Be Abused No More

    Thanks So Much For The Comments Everyone!! I Really Appriciate Them!! And No This Doesnt Happen To Me. But I Know It Happens To People All Over The World Who Dont Deserve It And I Pray For Those Kids Because They Have To Put Up With It And They Didnt Even Do Anything. Its The Person Abusing Them That Has The Problem And Needs Help Before That Person Takes Another Persons Innocent Life. I Feel Very Strongly About Abuse And Agree It Is One Of The Things That The World Doesnt Need Anymore Of!! Its Just Not Right!
