Loved Me To Death

by LL007

Yeah Girl, my boo loves me to death
   There aint nothing my boo wouldn’t do for me
    Or to me….

You see, hidden deep behind fears of abandonment and ridicule
  Was a dirty secret.  My dirty secret.  
  This secret was laden in crimson, black and blue
I will carry this secret forever because I didn’t know what to do

My friends, my family, they all knew
  Me, I was trapped in denial because I didn’t know what to do
All I could say was that I love my boo and my boo loved me too

What happened to your eye?
  Gotta come up with another lie..
What happened to your lip?
  Nothing girl, please don’t trip…

The apologies and promises-yes I accepted them
Because I believed it wouldn’t happen again- yes I believed them
An unsettled peace I felt from within
As I lived with my choice to stay with him
A living nightmare
 a somber finality to dread
 Blunt force trauma to the head
 Damn I’m dead

See, girl I told you
My boo loved me to death
