why did she stay, how did she go

She thought “He is the one”, Believed that it was love
He treated her so special, No one was put above

She had no way to know, Why would she even think
When He began to scare her, When He took to the drink

She didn’t want to tell, He never left a mark
She didn’t want to fail, But he became so dark

She denied it had gone bad, To family, friends, herself
He took her far away, To have her for himself

She needed to be needed, She wanted his gold ring
He begged her to stay with him, He promised everything

If she could only please him, If she could make it right
He tried to keep her close, Held that leash so tight

She felt such deep despair, No longer saw the light
And, he no longer cared Nor understood her plight

She finally had to leave She had to save herself
He sentenced her to twenty years Not twenty years to life
