Release me and Turn off the lights

He came into my life when I was just a little girl 
I was happy and young, and then he changed my 

One night I was in bed and he came to say good night. 
Except he took a little longer before he turned out the

He really hurt me that night, and I did'nt know what to do

I thought it happened to most every little boy and girl

I lay in bed that night, hurting inside and out 

tears rolling from my little face screaming trying not 
to shout. 
I put that tragic night in the back of my head, and 
grew up 
because there was nothing to be said. 

I thought it would only happen once, or maybe when 
I had done something bad, but from two years old 
to eight years old the longer the lights stayed on. 

how would I of known he was wrong or knew it was 
I just felt sad and all alone. 

All I do is mope and cry, with dirty feelings inside. 
No one understands what I feel each day 
Please someone take my hand to 
Never never land! 

Anything is better than here!!!

I cut myself sometimes when the pain gets to much 
I have to release something out 
I hate him so much and where he used to touch.
I hope someone hears my cries, and I hope they 
understand what he put me through and what
 he caused.

I keep having nightmares of this man. 
I feel that for me, there is no way out 
I just want to scream, scream and shout.
