Transformation

Her cheeks used to turn rosy in the coldness,
But now her cheekbones are defined and bare,
Why did this happen to her? It’s not fair
Destroyed by a man because of his boldness,
Watching her transform broke everyone’s heart,
I’d do anything to break them apart.

 

I miss seeing that lovely little laugh,
It pains me that he always makes her frown,
There’s scars and bruises under her dressing gown,
Her marks were noticed by the local shop staff,
He beat her and beat her until she cried,
She couldn’t leave but I know she had tried.

 

He wore her smile like he was proud of himself,
For hurting such a beautiful woman,
She needs to despise him. I know I can.
She used to be happy and so care-free,
He stole my best friend and made her so weak,
A tear slowly rolled down my stinging right cheek.

 

Her eyes were so full of sparkle and life,
Look at them now; they are dull, dark and sad,
I know she’s missing the life she once had,
She shouldn’t have let him make her his wife,
It is so crazy what people do for love,
Their love is a love I hate to think of.

My Fighter

We’d been in love for many years,
I found out and broke down in tears,
Why had this happened to my girl?
I’ll miss her blue eyes and her curls.

I helped her get through her chemo,
Held her as she rocked to and fro,
She cried into me; I felt weak,
I held her face and kissed her cheek.

It was July when I lost her,
I won’t forget what we once were,
She was beautiful, smart and strong,
She had to fight it for too long.

I was only 16 years old,
I’d lost my love, my heart was cold,
She will always be in my heart,
She always was, right from the start.
