I was blind to see the evanescent tears
the bruises and scars that surrounded you.
Torn I was, when I saw for myself
the gruesome acts that hurt you so-
it made my heart break into two
and all the while I wondered how,
then I looked in the mirror and there I saw-
it was me, it was all me, underneath it all
