I've been beaten, thrown at walls, and raped
I don't know what i did to deserve this
He yells constantly and hurts me everyday
I want to get away
Away from his harmful ways and actions
I don't know why he does this to me
Is this his way of showing me love
I have bruises everywhere black and blue
When people ask me what happened I lie
I don't tell them the truth
I want to tell someone so badly
But I don't want to get him in trouble
I love him
But I don't want to be hurt anymore
Oh God what do I do
I'm living in a hellhole and all I want to do is get out.
