I saw the world as if viewed through your eyes;
You shone through ev’ry smile and all my lies.
With each word I uttered, I heard your voice;
No matter how hard I tried, I had no choice.
Men I didn’t know penetrated my room;
While strangers consumed me, you filled my gloom.
With one caress, I let them take your place;
I screamed in the dark when I saw your face.
They whispered false love into my young ears;
For a brief moment, I felt no more fears.
Released from the endless torment of the truth;
Hope filled my dead heart that they may be you.
Men saw me as just something to plunder;
You left me diseased to pine and wonder.
They tore my clothes for their own sensation;
You didn’t save me from their violation.
