The Many Faces of Eve: The Rainbow

Updated on November 17, 2014

Battered, Beaten / The Rainbow: "Call me a rainbow, I'm purple, black and blue and red, sometimes yellow when pus runs from my head...Guess I'm pretty much a punching bag -but truth be told I've never felt so numb in my life -despite all my pain...sometimes I wish he'd beat me to my death -because after all the crying, and bleeding and trying to heal and love yourself -after all the emotional turmoil -something dies within you and you don't feel the 1st punch when he throws it and you aren't aware of your body hitting the floor -nor the blood gushing from the sore -you aren't aware of your feelings anymore -no tears, no fears, -just the rainbow..."
