"It is only you that I remember.

So tender, so kind

Walking me home day after day after day.

It is only you that I remember.

Whispering softly,

Sprawled upon my bed.

It is only you that I remember.

Detached and angry,

As my body crashes into the wall.

It is only you that I remember.

You,

Andthefearandthepainandtheblodandthetearsandthepushingandtheyellingandthekickickingandthestitchesandthecutsandthebruisesand

THAT NIGHTMARE IN THE BEDROOM.

Because I lost myself so long ago---

---It is only you that I remember."
