Unrecognizable

There was a time she would have walked away 
She has been beaten down for many years
What's left of her is standing here
Today she's unrecognizablle even to herself

She has been beaten down for many years
This is not the life she had imagined
Today she's unrecognizablele even to herself
Her dreams have been exchanged for a nightmare

This is not the life she had imagined
His promises had been sweet as fresh honey
Her dreams have been exchanged for a nightmare
His stings continue to ravish her soul

His promises had been as sweet as fresh honey
She used to get lost in those deep blue eyes
His stings continue to ravish her soul
Will she find an antidote for her pain

She used to get lost in those deep blue eyes
What's left of her is standing here
Will she find an antidote for her pain
There was a time she would have walked away

    A very sophisticated piece of writing. When people are beaten down so slowly overtime by someone who just doesn't appreciate them... just to look in the mirror and find you barely recognize yourself. Well it's time she moved on... but she seems hesitant to take that step. You've immersed me in your words yet again...

    I'm glad you extended it and I am sure Debs will like it better that way too. Thanks for telling me!

    This is very deep, Richard. Very well written, but very sad.

    Thanks Eileen, unfortunately many women find themselves in this situation.
