A Battered Lovers Lament

By CaliaDragon

Burned though I am

My soul weeps for you

Burned though I am

My heart beats for you

I am a fool, battered and bruised

I am a fool, bloodied and used

I cry tears of shame

Even as I cry your name

I cover a body used

Even as I open for you

I am a fool, battered and bruised

I am a fool, bloodied and used

My mother weeps for me

My father curses your name

My body yearns for you

Despite my shame

I am a fool, battered and bruised

I am a fool, bloodied and used

My mind screams to run from you

My body and heart beg for you

I am lost and confused

I am battered and bruised
