Too Little, Too Damaged

You told me this was ok
Not to tell my mommy
I thought it was a game
Now it's a self blaming thing.
I was little
Too little to understand
These things aren't supposed to happen.
Now here I am, still haunted by your name.
Seeing your face makes me cringe
Knowing you sleep at night
While I'm awake having to take pills just to be able to sleep right.
You took my innocence
Took my childhood.
Scarred me for life.
I'm afraid to be in public, I'm even afraid in my house.
Knowing you're out and about, really freaks me out.
You should have rotted away
But no you got away.
Because of you, I live in fear
I don't want you near.
Until you're gone, I want to disappear.
Knowing you're here, I'm not in the clear.
I'm ready to not live in fear.
