Never Crossed Her Mind


Walked in the room
saw her
in the crib
 a little girl

held her close
it began with him
too young for no
to cross her mind

six years old
goes to school
moves from state to state
 stares out the window
no never crossed her mind

10 years old
drinking gin
holds her close
drinks with him
no never crossed her mind

12 years old
chameleon of a child
dreams are real
life is a dream

never has any friends
just all of his
liquor on their breath
she knows what to do, passed around
and no never crossed her mind

14 now boys hanging 'round
hold her close
bring her home
carry her up the stairs
no never crossed her mind

16 when he died
face was dry
liquor on her breath
came to her in the night
she screamed aloud
and sadness never crossed her mind

She was 19
dark scrambled hair
bedroom eyes
good man took her home

Love and no never crossed her mind
had a healthy baby boy
held him day and night
fear
what to do

Called home
please get me
where I don't know
and questions never crossed his mind


Grabbed her baby boy
Ran far away
What was real
What was a dream
and the answer never crossed her mind

Walked the streets
State to state
Baby boy never safe
Dropped by the Fire Hall

And tears fell down her face

Years came and went
easier in a haze
all she knew
And reason never crossed her mind


Now, she lives alone
 old beyond her years
Wonders why
No never crossed her mind
Why
Love never crossed her mind

Lays in cold cold sweat
Guilt and regret
As
Sanity  slides across her mind



She was in her crib
It began with him
Baby girl never had a chance


Tonight she'll lay down

Only hate will cross her mind
