Solace

March 16, 2014 § Leave a comment

You’ll be hurting me tonight
as I cut you from my world
no longer My Girl Friday
because we both deserve better
despite the potential for abuse
that lives in you
that I won’t let live in me
though we could have been friends
if there were something to be friends with
I’d still like to believe there was
at one point
before you tried to tattoo that purple
over the grey within you
I tried
and that must be my solace.

because we have money now.

When he yelled at me, it tore my heart.
But it won’t hurt when he yells at you,
Because we have money now.

When he locked me up, I couldn’t breathe.
But you’ll still breathe when he locks you down,
Because we have money now.

When he beat me, it broke my bones.
But yours won’t break when he beats you,
Because we have money now.

When they left, it was so lonely.
But when we leave, you’ll never be lonely,
Because we have money now.

When he killed me, I took it quietly.
You should take it quietly too,
Because we have money now.

Where Am I?
