*Author Note*

Another sad and depressing poem. It was also originally written as a song, however, has survived as a poem. Read and enjoy.

Heaven, oh heaven

Help me please

Every story has two sides

And every person lives two lives

Daylight breaks over a dew-drenched horizon

She awakes, smiles as she rises

Prepares for another bright and glorious day

Cooks, cleans, and cares for the kids

But as the time draws near

She becomes fearful and drops to her knees

And she says:

Heaven, oh heaven

Help me please

I'm begging you on bended knees

Tell me can't you hear my pleas?

Give me a sign

Heaven, oh heaven please

Night falls on a lovely suburban house

She cowers, terrified in a corner

Prepares for another dark and disparing night

He pulls in—late as usual

She becomes fearful and falls to her knees

And she cries:

Heaven, oh heaven

Help me please

I'm begging you on bended knees

Tell me can't you hear my pleas?

Give me a sign

Heaven, oh heaven please

He walks in, the smell of alcohol trails behind

And there are harsh words, painful yelling

Soon bruises and cuts, scabs and scars

She wishes she could leave

But fears she hasn't the strength

She becomes hopeful and drops to her knees

And she prays:

Heaven, oh heaven

Help me please

I'm begging you on bended knees

Tell me can't you hear my pleas?

Give me a sign

Heaven, oh heaven please
