Tell Me It's Love

Your words hit hard

Leaving bruises and broken bones

Just beneath the surface

Of this thickening skin.

Tell me it’s love

One more time,

You keep making me forget.

So dull the blade

And hold your tongue

‘Cause this love

Can only take

So many hits

Before it’s knocked

Right out of this

Battered heart.


  1. My marriage turned sour and became emotionally and verbally abusive. Words really can hurt.
