i bruise easily

Sometimes, we can be so insensitive to our actions that we rarely think about how it affects others. We only become aware of it, when we are hurt also by the words and deeds of others most often close to us. That's the way it goes, we are seldom hurt by the actions of those who are not important or close to us. It's a different thing, altogether with our love ones. A single unkind word or act from them leaves us hurting, or at least me. And what i feel during those times are best described by Natasha Bedingfield in this song:

"I Bruise Easily" by natasha bedingfield

My skin is like a map
Of where my heart has been
And I cant hide the marks
Its not a negative thing
So I let down my guard
Drop my defences down by my clothes
I'm learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow

I bruise easily
So be gentle when you handle me
Theres a mark you leave
Like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily
Can't scratch the surface
Without moving me underneath
I bruise easily
I bruise easily

I found your fingerprints
On a glass of wine
Do you know you're leaving them
All over this heart of mine too
But if I never take this leap of faith
I'll never know
So im learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow


Anyone who can touch you
Can hurt you or heal you
Anyone who can reach you
Can love you or leave you

So be gentle...


I bruise easily
I bruise easily
