Overcoming The Pain

Written by: Summer Arthur

In my life you crept
And in my bed you slept,
Why hadn't I seen 
What would have been?

I regretted every night
When your words would bite,
Cried myself to sleep,
Cut scars in too deep.

Wrote your name a million times,
Read over all your crimes,
The bullet you shot in my heart
Was only one of many you tore apart.

Death sweetly called my name,
For you I took the blame,
Then realized I couldn't any longer
And found that I was stronger...
