Those days were some what cold
Trying to sink away
Hoping not to be noticed
So the pain would just disappear

The scars on my wrists
Will always be there
A reminder of a place
That is so very bare

Holding the tears in
As the memories go by
Leaving my body
Every time I see him

The thought he controls me
Spins my mind to bits
My innocence has gone
And will never be forgotten

I wished I was somewhere else
So I didn't deserve this
He blames it on me
Like I'm not worth it

He treats me like crap
Just throwing me around
I'm broken up inside
And left lying on the ground

My life was once worthy
But I'm sick of being judged
I'd give anything to be normal
Even though I'm not worth much

I was out-going and strong
Happy with my life
Until this bomb shell hit me
I just curled up and cried

The dreams are just repeating
Not stopping when I wake
Like I'm still living
With such an awful hate

Those days before all this happened
Seems like such a fairytale
If I told a single soul
He would never be let bail

Not being able to turn back
Is such an awful thought
Surviving all this
Is just something else...
