Sold: The Price, Me

Shadows
The place I have been forced 
to live my life. 
Horrible people doing horrible 
things to me in the dark. 
I have never been able to 
protest. 
They are always stronger than 
me.
Bigger than me.
The things of which they do, I 
can not tell.
Pushing.
Pulling.
Screaming.
Hurting.
Than darkness.
Every day it's the same.
So I escape it with drugs.
It's the only way I know how 
to escape.
The rush it brings puts down 
my guard.
I dont have a mind,
So when they hurt me, I don't 
care.
Sometimes I'm awake though.
It seems so much worse every 
time.
Longer.
It's always someone different 
every other night.
I hear them bartering how 
much.
My father always turns a profit.
He doesn't care about what 
he's doing to me. 
He never has.
I can only do his bidding and 
nothing else.
I can never tell about the he'll 
I live in.
Banished from heaven for an 
eternity until death.
