Love hurts

love-hurts

Love hurts
nothing she wouldn’t do
for love.
She stayed hidden
in darkness
only breathing for him
powerless to defend
as her skin
absorbed the blows
again and again.
Terror replaced the love
she longed for, had dreamed of
while watching Cinderella
but got a beast instead
one that destroyed her
one bruise at a time.
I told her one night
as her tears flowed
this is the last time I
take you to the emergency room
to get stitched up
put back together again
for I can’t witness your life
bleeding
for love.
