I Love You

I Love You

A Chapter by DeliriousCerises
"

Abusive relationship seen by the victim

"
Until the skin turns purple, it’s okay
Until the tears burn the cuts, it’s okay
Until your lips are bruised
And your hands are shaking
Until your life is stolen, it’s okay.

You said you were sorry
Like you always do -
Just when she wants to leave
And she always comes back to you

You believe his lies
Because you wish they were true
You hide your pain
So the world wont judge you

Until the skin turns purple, it's okay
Until the tears burn the cuts, it's okay

You're crying again
You're saying you want to die, again
But there are still no marks on your skin
Can he forgive you again?

You can’t look in his eyes
You brace for what you know is true
He dignifies you with a sneer
“What the f**k is wrong with you?”

Until your lips are bruised
And your hands are shaking
Until your life is stolen, it's okay

You’re falling now, stunned anew
This time it was simply too much
You’re dirty in his eyes, on the floor
But to his yelling he added his own touch

Was he out for blood
In this mess, maybe it was you
The dissonance played to a golden silence
But heard above it all, a final, “I Love You”

Until the skin turns purple, it’s okay
Until the tears burn the cuts, it’s okay
Until your lips are bruised
And your hands are shaking
Until your life is stolen, it’s okay.

Author's Note

DeliriousCerises
This feels like a more polished version of "Love You to Pieces" once again, I get the feeling that I wrote better than I write.
