my mother
 
when i was young, my mother's pale skin was laced with bruises
 
these weren't ordinary bruises, they were out of love
 
my father 
 
when i was young, my father's breath was laced with alcohol and sadness
 
these weren't ordinary beers, they were only 5% alcohol and 95% love 
 
i learned that love was painful 
 
when your hand collided with my face
 
 it was out of love
 
when you screamed profanities at me 
 
it was out of love 
 
when you threw a vase at the wall
 
 it was out of love
 
everything you did was out of love 
 
but in the end I was the one who was blinded by your love to realize
 
you were the one who was damaging my heart
 
and even though it was out of love,
 
it still fucking hurt like hell
