Lifeless body lies as he tears your insides and takes your pride,
With no care of the helpless person that lies in his power.
Dark thoughts and empty feelings, the disgust in yourself and in him.
You feel like an animal abused, being watched after the fact,
In fear of being attacked by the predator.
Nowhere to turn or seek help isolated in a cage
Waiting for the nightmare to return-
Lo and behold you see the light, and hope, and escape,
Ready to take back your power.
You are not the abused animal; you are not the victim.
You escaped; you are the survivor.
