Disguise


Disguise

I'm living a lie, it's true, I'm hiding behind a disguise.
If I took off all of my makeup, it would reveal my shameful blackened eyes.
I can't remember when it started, but everyday I pray for it to end.
He says he will stop, but as soon as he gets mad, his fist hit me again and again.
Again and again it's happening ,so often and I know he hears my cries.
Once he calms down, he says he can't believe he let his anger take control and then he will apologize.
For a few days it seems everything is getting better and things are going great.
Believing that he would change for love was one of my biggest mistakes.
My family notices the bruises on my arms and around my neck.
For every scar he made, I had an excuse, more and more regrets.
I grab my things and he violently grabs me by my hair.
Telling me he would kill me if I left and I'm not going anywhere.
I felt like there was no way out, so I decided to take my own life.
Staying in an abusive relationship is lethal, don't be a sacrifice.
To anyone out here that can relate, don't be victim, instead be a survivor and fight.
