BLACK and BLUE

BLACK and BLUE

Today I wonder, 
Wonder why?
You hit me in the eye, 
you made me cry.

My eyes are brown,
Now they're black and blue.
Is that what I get for loving you?

My lips are pink, now they're bloody red.
Is that what I get!!!
Do you wish I were dead?

My teeth are white, 
I just lost three, 
Is that what I get over a little fight? 
 
I see a smile underneath,
I see you leaving with the police.
I finally got rid of you.
I can't believe I waited, 
UNTIL I WAS BLACK AND BLUE.
        
 SK

NOTE: True story, I finally did the right thing and called the cops

Good write. Good read. I concur that you can never fight alone. Humans were made to be helped; and also required to be held responsible for their action. Stay strong my friend.

SKAT, this is beautiful, but in life a lot people would say that you were crazy. Most people don't understand the power of love, but when you come to the decision enough is enough, that when you obtain the power to let go. Glad u did,
