You still buy me
my pearls and iced tea
and sit on display
your trophy wife nicely
just as you kindly
put those bruises on my arm

You still kiss me
but im slipping
through the parting lips
of their bottomless pity

You still love me,
but its my flaws, see
my faults and failures
to fulfill your needs
so not you, but me
got these bruises on my heart
