Here I stand In the midst of a room splattered with blood, My blood. Like a child on punishment you've left me alone. I love you, Those are the words you spoke as you turned to leave. Love? Your love for me is tainted by my blood. I must clean, Remove all evidence that this has happened. Things will change, I allow myself the delusion cuz reality hurts too much. So many tears, Mixing with bleach and blood. Broken bones, Don't hurt as much as my broken heart. So abandoned, By the strength of will it takes to stand as a woman. I am no woman, Today I am just broken, shattered by your fist.
