Raven's Goodnight

She sits up waiting, 
But for what;
Another midnight beating?
She hears a car door
And steps coming closer.
With keys in the lock,
The door flies open.
"What are you still doing here?
I told you to get out!"
And his fist came down,
Hard on her mouth.
What had she done wrong?
Why did he do this;
These terrible things,
Causing her so much pain?
She stands up,
Wiping the blood from her lip
And he slams her back
Down to the floor.
She lies there,
Hoping everything will just disappear.
He walks down the hallway;
The only thing she hears now,
Is the gunshot.
She runs down the hallway
And into the bedroom,
Only to find her husband,
Dead in his doom.
With the blood still coming
From the hole in his head,
She steps over him
And climbs into bed.
She says,
For the first
And last time.
