I look in the mirror the face I see is that of a stranger.
What happened to me?
Where did I go?
My eyes are swollen. My face bruised.
My body covered in black and blue
When did this become my life?
Scared to say something wrong
I live in fear
I live in the shadows
Suffocating, always anxious
I am in hell
When did I stop fighting back?
I look at the roses on the table
A token of your remorse
An empty promise that you will never hit me again
I keep hoping, I keep praying Till the next time and the next and the next...
