Today you were so kind and sweet.
You kissed my black eye and licked my cracked lip.
You were so sorry you knocked me off my feet.
I know it’s my fault I made you flip.
I try so hard to please you dear
Your standards are high I fail miserably.
That you may leave me one day, is my fear,
I know deep down, you do love me, despite my tears.
I’m sorry I reported you to the police,
The doctors at the hospital brought them in,
They were worried about the bullet in my shin
And the cuts and bruises on my skin.
Thank you for forgiving me
I will try much harder than before,
Your love is all I need to live,
Without you I am lost, you are my core.
