Title: Bruises (Work in progress)

I wear my bruises like medals
To show you what you've done
You polish them with deep freeze
Secretly pleased
With what you've achieved

You give me the arnica
To help them fade away
Ready for the next time
Your fists want their say

And I'll stand there
and take my punishment
Not aware of what I've done
And you'll stand there
and scream at me
Knowing I'm too scared to run
