Glass spread across the floor,
Blood fills the room
And I see the broken window

I notice her then, broken and laying there
Breathing shallow
Pulse slowing
Eyes blank
And heart shattered

She can’t breathe anymore
Because of your sting
And Fist

You’re not human,
You’re a disease
Taking Lives as you please
Taking her life bit by bit,

Somebody calls her name from below
Looking for the girl
They thought they know
But she ain’t home,
All that’s left is an empty shell
From you beating her like hell

Now her lips turn blue
I feel her pulse stutter
One, Two
She tries to scream,
But all that’s left is a gurgle
And I hear her suck in one last breath
Before me

That girl is dead now,
Because of you
Because of your words
And fist

I’m slipping now,
Like those bruises
But I won’t be forgotten
Like the scars you dug across my chest

Because of you,
I lay there dead
Drowned in my own blood
Because of what you said

You’re not human,
You’re a disease
Taking lives as you please
And you took my life bit by bit,
Finally it killed me

I was listening to some music and it inspired me. And I love this poem, even though it's not my best work. But something about it just made me think I should display it
