Caged

It was like love at first sight........ or I thought it was. 

So much time and energy, I cannot even run away if i had the option. 

You hold me down with your words as if they are shackles, 

You took advantage of my vulnerability and abused me.

You stripped away all freedom. 

A raging bull charging at me made my eyes bleed. 

Hearing you speak made my ears bleed.

Who are you who am I. 

I scream, you hear, but do you understand me. 

I hide, you notice, but do you actually see me. 

I am a person who thought I was in love.
