Today we had a fight. I’m not sure how it started, Or who raised their voice first. All I know is that now I have bruises. Ones that sting when you touch them. You tried to apologize. You tried to clean me up, And make me feel better. But bruises take time to heal. And so do cuts and scratches. I can’t forgive you right now. But the bruises will heal soon. And then all will be better. Because I can’t be mad at you. Maybe if I had kept my mouth shut then we wouldn’t be like this. Maybe if I wasn’t so sensitive then we wouldn’t have these problems. Today we had a fight and I’m not sure where it started. All I know is that I have bruises and cuts and scratches. That could have been avoided, If I just kept my mouth shut.
