Hidden in the shadows

There’s nothing to see now

For the soul of you is shallow

And you don’t see how

The wicked words you say

Have made me immune to pain

While all surrounds me is grey

You pull me down with chains

I let a cry of help escape my dry lips

And you laugh while I fall deep

But these heavy chains that drape around my hips

Make it painful at night for me to sleep

I still try to force the reap memories out that I can’t keep

And while I dream to one day  tell on the bad guy

Who would believe a girl who weeps

With bruises on her thighs
