Why has she been born?
Because her mother loves another
Enough to let this jewel adorn.
Now she's walking,
Where is she walking?
She doesn't care,
She knows her loving parents will always be there.
Now she's falling,
Why is she falling?
Because their eyes met
And they're as beautiful as a hundred sunsets.
Now she's crying,
Why is she crying?
Because she doesn't understand what's wrong,
So she suffers in silence and tries to stay strong.
Now she's kissing,
Who is she kissing?
That girl she fell in love with all those years ago,
Who brings her so much happiness but soon will bring her woe.
Now she's screaming,
Why's she screaming?
She's trying to drown out their angry voices,
That try to tell her she's making the wrong choices.
Now she's recovering,
Where is she recovering?
In a hospitable bed,
Because they beat her till she was almost dead.
Now she's weeping,
Why is she weeping?
Because her lover is in a bathtub full of blood,
Because she finally had enough.

Grey eyed me as I stepped into the Staff Room, his gentlemanly features schooled into a carefully blank expression. “Are you really feeling better?” he asked, cutting directly to the chase.
I glanced at him for the barest of a moment before letting my lips twitch upward. “I shall endure.”
The teachers surrounding our desks turned their heads to observe the two of us.
