She Stays

She has been called so many names other than her’s.
So many times she has lost count.

Shamed for loving you too much.
Blamed for letting you drive her insane.

During the day she masks her frown with some makeup.
Hoping you’ll change before you wake up.

She plays your game and it’s strange.
Even though she shouldn’t, she stays.

Drowning in her tears at night.
Grabbing it tight.

Hoping if she closes her eyes tight enough, her nightmares will be over.
She stays even though your the toxin in her alcohol when she should be sober.

I wish you knew, she stays for you.
