This new person in your heart,

Has blinded you from all the rest.

He has hidden you from his flaws,

All you see is his best.

--&--

I have screamed to you,

Trying to yell truth to your deafened ears.

My face has turned blue

From all my flowing tears.

--&--

You let him run

Over your domain.

The tortured scream of music

Is all that keeps me sane.

--&--

He beats me into silence

I've been screaming in my head.

When you leave, he traps me in a room,

By God, how I wish he was dead.

--&--

I've returned to my old habit,

After all the years of therapy.

I trap myself like a rabbit,

Inflicting my bloody cuts.

--&--

It feels to me a dream,

A figment from my nightmares.

You never hear me scream,

Your blind, even to my shirt's tears.

--&--

Tonight, you leave the house

I beg you not to go.

Now I am the mouse,

Staring into his eyes of indigo.

--&--

I flee from the room,

As you enter the car.

I want to feel the safe gloom,

He will open up my heart's scar.

--&--

My fingers fumble with the lock,

Frozen sweat beading my brow.

I hear his footsteps coming up the stairs,

Fear is consuming all of me.

--&--

The security of the click,

Is a moments gift to me.

He pounds a fist on my door,

The knob jerks, he's pulling it free.

--&--

My warm blankets I see,

I dive to them and shove them over me.

Hearing the rattle of the knob,

I grab my headphones and hear music's throb.

--&--

The striking chords of music,

Is blaring into my ears.

Tears glisten on my cheeks,

He been doing this for weeks.

--&--

I hear the jangling of a key,

Even through the music.

I hope it's you come to save me,

Turning off the sound, I pray I don't lose it.

--&--

Uncovering the sheets,

I see a light spilling on the floor.

The key is in his hand,

He's standing by the door.

--&--

He walks over to me,

Stopping at the foot of my bed.

I huddle myself closer,

Oh God, I wish he was dead.

--&--

Pain erupts where he hits,

My face is stinging, I know it's red.

His fingers dig into my shoulders,

As he forces me down onto the bed.

--&--

I kick, bite, claw, and scratch,

But, to him, I am no match.

Gripping my wrists in one hand,

The other trails down me.

--&--

I heard your car door,

He didn't, he's still fighting.

I don't want this to happen anymore,

So I start with biting.

--&--

My screams ring throughout the house,

They run outside to meet you.

He forces his mouth on me,

Now I am the mouse.

--&--

Halfway through his deed,

You run up the hallway.

A radiant angel's steed,

Throws him off of me.

--&--

I pull the pieces to my shirt closer to me,

Finally, you heard my plea.

You phoned the police moments before,

I hear the sirens wailing outside the door.

--&--

Your hand claws him across the face,

Blood running from his brow.

You give me another shirt to where,

When you see the massive tears.

--&--

Policemen burst into the room,

Handcuffs take him away now.

Now, at the end of my story,

You say, "I'm sorry."
