SOMEBODY TOOK ME AWAY
DATE: 14 JUNE 2012

FROM: talesofabutterfly.wordpress.com

Somebody took me away
Somebody took me away before I could even know me
My Jewels, My Heart, My Life
All carried away
The night when somebody took me away

Somebody took me away
Somebody took me away before I could even know me
He ripped my soul apart with his bare teeth
And hung my treasures like a flag on his erect shaft
As he took me again, and again, and again…

Somebody took me away
Somebody took me away before I could even know me
He forced his way into my locked doors
And stripped my house clean
He took it all
Left nothing for me
For now
For the future
For the me I would eventually be
He took me away
I watched my self respect glisten on his penis after he had taken me
I saw my trust glow crimson on the sheets which he also took from me
I leaked the shame from my eyes until I tasted its salty warmth in my bitter open mouth
While the me in me was being taken away from me
Thrust after painful thrust, after trust

Somebody took me away
Somebody took me away before I could even know me
Dolls thrown in the dust
Broken under your heel
As you trampled over my thighs
To kill the little girl in me

And you stripped from me the me who should be me

Somebody took me away
Somebody took me away before I could even know me
My heart is a flightless bird
Its wings clipped by rage
Caged
When will I ever be loved?
No, not me
Because somebody took me away

I will never be free
Will never be free to be me
Who is me?
But a broken, de-spirited version
Of the me that should be me?
Because somebody took me away

Because YOU took me away…

    Moving, very very moving. It was a tear jerker.
