Black and Blue

Beat me black and blue.
Strip me down to nothing more than skin across the floor.

Beat me black and blue.
Make me how you see yourself, so you won’t feel so alone.

Beat me black and blue.
Scrape my confidence away, with the same knife inside your heart.

Force me to see myself the way the world sees you.
Force me to believe in myself, the way my demons do.

Beat me black and blue.
Fuck my life up.

I knew that you were hurting.
I just wasn’t expecting to hurt with you.

I can’t even tell you how much I care.
I can’t even help you fight it all.
I don’t know how.

Beat me black and blue.
Take away the pain I have, wishing you were fine.
Take away the judgment and the whining and the time.
Take away the pressure and the hate.

Beat me black and blue.
Then leave me without you.
