Snapped

Stripped
Barren
Nude
Undressed
Exposing what’s bare
Leaving me defenseless
Maiden violated
Pillaging her treasure
Wearing down the broken
Makes you hard as steel
Mother given the mark of Cain
The Crone cries for what
Was lost & stolen from her soul
By the tin man born without a heart

Snapped in Stockholm
Trapped in your tower 
Of  bitter neglect
My foe forgets me
I am dead to him
But, then I scream like a banshee 
For justice
The curse of loving me
Is the haunting by the phantom
Who destroys all who torment me
Wicked betrayals become obsession
For the one you threw away
Time & time again
Like a piece of garbage

Mercy withheld
My sweetness turns sour
My love acidic
Vengeance rules the heart
That you neglected to fill with love

On the edge of madness
Bungee cord snapped 
Desperately hanging on
Trying to gather what’s left of my heart
That you shattered in to a million pieces
Harrowing abuse, threats, manipulation & torture
My punishment for daring to challenge my ruler
Yet, you pretend it’s not true
So you don’t have to look at the batterer looking back at you in the mirror
Who annihilates women for sport
Even though dsyfunction and death surround you
You fail to see my blood dripping from your diabolical hands
