7. I Fell

Slamming doors and broken bones,
It happens in too many homes,

A bleeding lip and black eye,
Just say you fell, they'll believe the lie

Walking limps and quiet voices,
You get the blame for their bad choices,

One more mistake that you make,
Another hit for you to take,

Black and blue under sleeves,
Just say you fell, they will believe,

Scratching floors and shaking tears,
No one listens to your fears,

Time flies by and scars are made,
The screaming dies and voices fade,

Pain turns numb,
The lies roll off your tongue,

Someone asks why you look unwell,
Just tell a lie, say you fell.
