I watched you walk away jilted
your face hung low and wilted,
I chose to keep you away
setting your thoughts in disarray.

I believed I had a choice
I was polite and made no noise,
it was my life, my decision;
that upset your planned precision.

But you came back unexpected
to show me you were dejected,
with a few drops of acid you spoke
and burnt my dreams down to smoke.

Brave, the warrior in me fought,
you thought I’d give up, distraught?
I battled the bruise and the blister
unwilling to succumb to the disaster.

I am not the body you scarred
whose features you savagely charred,
survives my spirit, strong as ever
keeping me bold and beautiful forever.

  9. I am glad her spirit was strong, stronger than her body. And I'm doubly glad this is not a report of a real story, as I do not think I could bear to read it. Such sad atrocities that pains my heart... (tearing). <3
