#BecauseILoveYou

Because I love you

I say I'm okay when they ask me what's wrong

Because I love you

I say I tripped over the rug when they see my bruise

Because I love you

I let you do this to me everyday but still love your touch

Because I love you

I ended up in the hospital talking to a therapist about suicide

Because I love you

I told the officers nothing when someone reported loud yelling and shattered glass

Because I love you

I pushed everyone away and I spend my days alone

Because I love you

I'm crying myself to sleep everynight after you got arrested

Because I love you

I think of you and try visiting but they don't let me

Because I loved you

I know what pain and abuse is.
