some say I should have told you
forced truth the whole truth nothing
but the truth upon you
            my recompense

some say I should have shown you
pried open eyes made you see
bluish-purple bruise on me
            your consequence

some say I should have held you
to harsh light exposed dark lies
called witnesses to defend
            my innocence

I could not tell you show you
hold you to harsh light because
I loved you wanted far more for
            your happiness
