The black of night is her goal,
To run for her salvation and her soul.
Far from where he will find her,
From her life of fear and terror.
For it is freedom she seeks,
From the Mr. that speaks.
Commanding that she be his,
To be the mother to another’s kids.
He could not be more wrong,
For in the dark of night, she will be gone.
Seeking safety for her own life,
Void of terror and void of strife.
The love he offers has cost too much,
With every fist and every touch.
Living under her lover’s thumb,
He has made her heart numb.
Demanding all she had to give
But his way, she will no longer live.
This life, she will soon escape,
To a different time and a different place.
