Love Should Not Hurt
By: Ms. K
We all want that perfect love story. We want the man who would do anything for us. We want that nursery rhyme ” first comes loves, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage.” We want our lives to fit this perfect puzzle piece. We don’t want the bruises, the verbal insult, the fear, and the tears. The moment when you ask yourself is this LOVE? Can someone love me, but hurt me at the same time. The answer is no!
Love does not hurt, Love does not bleed, Love should not bring fear into your eyes. When a person loves you, they protect you, not hurt you constantly.
Love is Blind
by Ms. K
Love is blind
My lips are silent
It’s hard to escape his love
It can’t hide my bruises
My scars against my eye
My broken rips
Remembering when you use to rock me
The sweet flowers you sent to my job
Whispering sweet nothing in my ear
Now all I see is blood on my floor
My Black and Blue face reflecting in the cracked mirror
Seeing only mini images of my body
Hearing your deep tenor voice in the background
“CLEAN THIS SHIT UP BITCH”
When you act that way
I can’t control my anger
I do it because I love you
Is this LOVE?
Are my bruises from love?
As my body shacking from fear
Is this love?
