Watching From the Window

You see her everyday
Bruises hiding pain
Watching from the window
In silence you remain

Darkness controls her future
His grip grabs her soul
Watching from the window
A witness to it all

Screams of pain bring chills
You can't believe your eyes
Watching from the window
A precious life you deny

Helpless body broken
He lingers with her there
Watching from the window
Her pain you cannot bare

He sells her soul to darkness
While you pretend to cry
Watching from the window
You didn't even try

An empty body lost
Her heart lived in fear
Watching from the window
Pleading you refused to hear

Another life forgotten
If you would've only told
Watching from the window
Lifeless body taken by control    written by JSQ
