Past the smiles & hollow chatter
Behind the mask & mirrors
A child, with who, no one did rear

Wild and vile; beat into submission
Retaliation came with conditions
Hugs & kisses in horrible positions

Night terrors to ring so twisted
Paralysis of every limb to lid
Talking in sleep, since a little kid

Fled so free; all there was to be
Only to be captured; dreams shattered
Caged up like an animal; mastered

Her story to had just begun
The day she turned 18
Never to look back at anyone~
