I Don't Daydream

“I Don’t” Daydream

The home that they lived in
She called a prison
Discarding her dreams
For his self-esteem

She was a prize
To show off to the guys

And he bragged and he boasted
While she stayed devoted

She bore his children
Ignored the women

That he kept on the side 
To nourish his pride

Her friends always told her
That she deserved better

And should think about leaving
To stop all of her grieving
But she took a vow
That no matter how

Her marriage might hurt
She would make it work

She knew in her heart
That she could not depart

Because of his temper
If she left he would kill her

Like he almost did
In front of the kids

The night that he choked her
The night that he broke her

Now she had a plan
To get rid of this man

Without a divorce
Or going through courts

Even though she still loved him
She decided to drug him

And when he collapsed
She drew him a bath

Then held him down
And watched him drown…

 …”Miss are you okay.”

She awoke from the dream
Quickly took off the ring

Then faced the pews
And delivered bad news

She shook head, and told them “I won’t”
Instead of saying “I do” she said “I don’t”

She flipped off the groom
Then ran out the room

And got away clean
Forever a queen
