in memory of my great inspirer


she was confused and abused in this life
emotional and violent moments
seemed to take the longest time
every single knockout dragout
fight they ever had
he starts to Laugh he starts to lie
with suddenly psychotic eyes

every night she cried herself
to sleep she didn't recognize
her own face in the mirror
black & blue
so afraid intimidation
like a child she hides away
he would always try to justify
what wasn't true

justified black eye

taken for granted
she sleeps by the phone
waiting for a call from him
seems he's never coming home
14 beers later he is there without an answer
once again she questions his lies
he goes to bed with no reply

tomorrow morning different story
and he'll be a different guy
he'll justify her black eye
with another lie
she packs her bags in great temptation
he's on his knees again he cries
a hug & a kiss and don't know why
as a tear drops from her swollen eye
apologies until tonight and another

justified black eye


from how have i sunk into that, released November 22, 2013
