Rose petals & bruises
Love hurts when we lose it
Deep cuts, black & blue skin
I can’t hide from what the truth is
I won’t lie, in love? I stay losing
I finally know what colour maroon is
Because it’s been lingering on my thin skin.
When I close my eyes, he flashes
Coming at me with a full fist & tongue lashes
I wish I could no longer be in love with him
But shooting stars won’t grant it
I wish I had never fallen in love with him
But fate had already planned it.
I’m hiding from my lover.
Steady chilling in the kitchen counter
Because he’ll probably hit me with a tennis racket
I never thought a sophisticated girl like me would be involved in a love that’s ratchet.
“I’m sorry I made you angry”
My head hurts…
I was hoping one day, I’d tell my kids a beautiful story about what love is,
But he kicked me so hard in my ovaries, so I doubt that will happen.
Then he grabs my arm
Bending me over
Annihilating my body sexually.
Then he looks at me
With a dirty smile
Saying “baby you know I love you, never leave me, please believe me”.
