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
