"I thought for sure that I was not alone

That my knight-in-shining-armor had come,

You seemed so magical, more than just bone

And the pain that I knew had been undone.

You committed to love me more than life

From sunrise to sunset that was your goal,

You said that someday I would be your wife

And in the end we would share the same soul.

Months later my body is a game

Meant to be broken and bruised like a doll,

You derive pleasure from my screams, my pain

Cut me again, my dear, and watch me fall.

Fucked up on your kitchen floor I will cry,

Only by your hand, you love, will I die."
