She Tries to Pretend

 

She hides the bruises

Behind layers of make up

And to much rouge.

She tries to pretend

Everything is okay

But deep down she knows

Hitting someone you love

Is never okay

Yet everyday he comes home

With a little beer on his breath

And A balled up fist

Meets her face.
