Sorry baby, you had to see me
like this. I didn’t mean to yell
and cry in front of you. You didn’t hear
them yelling at me at work,
telling me how worthless I am.
I couldn’t cry and yell and scream there.
I had to stand and take it.
I’m sorry baby you had to be the one
I took my pain out on.
I didn’t mean to hurt you. I didn’t know
I was hitting you until it was too late
to stop it. I wanted to hit the ones
who hurt me; I never meant to
take it out on you. You didn’t
see me run into the bathroom
and cry and yell and scream
because I hurt the one I love.
I’m so sorry baby. I don’t want
this to ever happen again,
but I don’t know how to make
them stop. Even when I hurt
you, I love you and I am sorry.
