Rodriguez Middle School

They had been together
since Rodriguez Middle School

he had been so nice
the cutest guy

in her grade
all the girls were jealous

everyone said
they were made for each other

but by tenth grade
he became abusive

she couldn't even look
in the direction of other boys

he'd punch her on the shoulder
hurt her bruise her

but she loved him
he'd slap her

and jerk her arms
and kick her sometimes

they had been in love
since Rodriguez Middle School

at fourteen she got pregnant
he started cheating on her

with her best friend
her heart was broken

in so many pieces
one night she got

her cousin's gangster gun
Bang! Bang! (My Baby Shot Me Down)

Bang! Bang!
Rodriguez Middle School
