Bruises causing so much pain

Pain that won't go away with any drug

You always search for someone to blame

Look in the mirror and you'll see the thug

The real beast who you should try to tame

Look what you've done, my dripping blood...

Bruises so deep they hit the bone

Blue, green, yellow, and purple too

Strangley these bruises feel like home

When these bruises ache what else can you do?

Bruises with hidden meanings, just like a poem

Strangely these bruises were given by you...

Bruises so old they'll never heal

Lost so much that I'm feeling weak

Though I cry  never regret how I feel

You never thought the grapevine would leak

And you crash down like a wave of steel

A lifetime of bruises has turned me into a freak...
