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.

Back to routine

Summer is over, autumn is here,
I know these are words you don’t want to hear,
No one on earth likes an early start,
waking up with shivers whilst it’s still dark.

I have a piece of advice for you,
start your morning’s off with a hearty brew!
For me, it’s the best way to wake up,
You could say it’s like heaven in a cup.

There is no more waking up at noon,
and it’s time to leave your duvet cocoon.
School is calling and so is your work,
but you can see your friends, so that’s a perk!

Swap the telly for a good old book,
and take pride in how you’re going to look
because a new year is a fresh start,
UNI is next year so I must be smart!
