    The Devil Almost Took it All, by Venus Connelly

    Bled myself out
    Got out a good shout
    Today I refuse to pout
    I am done giving my all
    But I learned from this fall
    Don’t bother to call
    The blood on the floor will dry
    And today I will not cry
    Because you never did try
    Don’t look back
    I am on a new track
    Your lies are added to the stack
    I am cold and numb
    Feel as small as a crumb
    But that’s not what I’ll become
    I’ll get well
    And never again buy what you sell
    Determined to climb out of this hell
    You’ll see me again
    I’ll be out of this bullpen
    You took so many pieces
    Left so many bruises
    All for the muses
    Your loss
    For giving me the toss
    But I am saved by the cross
