I stood before you,
My body ablaze.
In the fire you set,
Screaming in agony.

I layed on the floor, 
The life of me leaving.
Left broken and bruised,
Your words and actions
Tore me to pieces.

My heart shattered,
In the wreckage of your abuse.
Aching in every fractured piece, 
Leaving me confused.

I was drowning,
Gasping for air, 
In all the lies and manipulation,
A sea of deceit and despair.

Your eyes as black as coal,
Staring back into mine...
You said,
"I never saw the signs"

You said , I was to blame...
For you, it was all a mind game.
