Evidence – The Song

Every daydream/book needs a song, right?  Here’s my suggestion for one of my chapters.  I think of someone like Alanis Morissette singing it.  Excerpt from The Book.

EVIDENCE

You can’t hurt me

I don’t feel anything at all

 

Blood and death surrounds me.

The police cars,

The evidence tape,

The blood, the photographs, the fingerprints.

The years and hours at work

Working crime scenes

Taught me to not feel.

 

You can’t hurt me

I don’t feel anything at all

 

Red and blue lights

Dance in the streets,

Circling over my head

And in my dreams.

 

Now I’m cold and mean and strong.

Your words can’t touch me.

Your touch can’t burn me.

You can’t hurt me

I don’t feel anything at all.

 I watched the two of you drive by the crime scene.

The blue and red lights

Illuminated your faces,

Laughing, hugging, kissing.

In my heart I wrapped evidence tape around you both.

Took a photo in my mind.

Evidence of a crime scene,

Evidence of your cheating heart.

 

You can’t hurt me

I don’t feel anything at all.

 

You are just another crime scene

Two criminals in chains

To be categorized, numbered

And stored away in a box.

The verdict guilty as charged.

 

Now you can’t hurt me

I don’t feel anything at all.

You can’t hurt me.

But you did.
