Slide


Sleepless nights
Full of fright
As the door opens again
A monster slips in
Counting till it's all over
Praying for my life to be over
Sweat and steam lead to sleepless dreams
School is where the boys are cruel
Touching and poking about
This is not the life I had wanted to live out
He calls me by her name
He says he is ashamed
Losing her was like losing part of his brain
I just wish she'd come home again
He tells me I am to blame.
Every night is the same
I hate to play his stupid games
Night by night he calls her name as I crawl into a ball of shame
He pokes and prods without any care
He leaves me lying in nothing but underwear.
After school I climb into bed
I fall asleep trying to clear my head
I wake up to him on my side
I pull out a knife and slide it in without a single cry
People tell stories of a loving guy
Who didn't deserve to die
They will never know his horrible lies
Because that night I, too, died without a cry
