      With friends they all laugh
      Sharing stories and dreams
      What a perfect couple
      Or so it may seem

      He is attentive and kind
      Fooling friends with his charm
      But little do they know
      Just how much he can harm.

      They walk home together
      On a beautiful warm night
      His hands holding hers
      Just a little too tight.

      When the front door closes
      His smile it just goes
      Her stomach in knots
      As she waits for the blows.

      Not physical not him
      He rarely leaves a mark
      Remember the saying
      The worst IS the bark.

      Beaten by words, control, silence and hate
      day after day
      Degraded worthless but he likes you that way.

      But silently you grow stronger
      You wont take any more
      One day you will tell your story
      Of what happens when you close the front door.
