I am an icepack for a bruised lip
I am solitude
When your friends strip you down
And leave you naked and cold
I'm the only one left
Because I was the only one who was ever there
But you don't see me
Unless its through your black eye
Because the moment
Your abusers take you back up in their wretched arms
You forget every wrong
And you leave me here
In my first aide kit until you get smashed to pieces again.
Loyalty is a double-edged sword
I'll never stop loving you
Even if you're conditional, and unkind, and sick.
Enjoy my perks while they last
Because while you suck the life from my lungs
The marrow out of my bones
You're too blind to see
Your security blanket is
ripping at the seams.
