Shadow That Never Leaves
He makes her feel worthless
Beats her until she bleeds from her eyes,
Leaves cuts and bruises even though she tries.
She does nothing wrong
He’s like a shadow that never leaves.
Eyes of a killer,
Clenched fists waiting to break bones.
If his body was a language,
It would be fluent in intimidating.
The shadow that never leaves.
She lives in fear,
Trapped inside a room filled with nightmares.
Except the one that wakes her up,
Sleeps beside her.
