I lay :(

Strangled by darkness,
Entangled by deceit,
Overcome by weakness,
Silenced by meekness,
Dreams broken and shattered,
I lay bruised and battered.

Scorned and shamed,
Hated and blamed,
Spat at and labeled an outcast,
I lay hurt and lonely.

Footsteps I hear,
Rapists I fear,
Could they have come to strip me naked once more?
Wallop me and Rape me yet again? Plant their toxic sperm in my womb just like they once did?
Footsteps I hear,
Rapists I fear.

Raped, bruised and battered I lay
