I know sometimes love hurts but it's not supposed 2 bruise... Often I wonder what it is that makes a woman choose 2 be abused. Some of them don't feel the blows, but feel the harsh words sting. They say stuff like he loves me, he's just going through some things. Women get with a guy that from the beginning is so nice... Then he starts 2 tell her what she can wear & trying 2 control her life. Telling her who she can go out with & where she can go... She'd better answer her phone when he calls & when 2 be home. And she says he loves me, he's just a little insecure... He comes home from work, his dinner's nice & hot... But it's not what he wants... So dinner hits the floor & he hits the roof... Calls his woman a stupid whore & gets the 180 proof. She tries 2 appease him while she cleans the kitchen... As the fire-water releases him from any indiscretion. And he flies at her like a heavyweight in the beginning of the 12th round... With his eyes bloodshot & deadly, straight jabs & hooks knock her 2 the ground. She gets a 10 count... He gets his knockout... But he loves her, he's just going through rough times. She stays home from work cuz her eye's black & her face is swollen... And shades can't cover the emotional bruises that she can't help but showin'. Cuz every 15 minutes she starts crying uncontrollably... Thinking 2 herself that she should've left a million times... But she loves him and she can't see herself without him... So all day she thought of what she could do 2 bring him satisfaction as she absentmindedly ran her fingers along her bruises & scratches. Yeah, sometimes love will definitely hurt, but it shouldn't bruise.
