Laughter, sweet sunshine in the presence of you

Declaring nothing, but bitter berries;

That resemble your face.

I cannot begin to dream the tomorrows,

Nor the tainted agreements that are untrue.

Why, why did you leave me to shiver in the bitter cold?

When I had nothing, but your hatred

I was alone, I was beaten

I was your fantasy there in your deluded mind

What did I ever do to you as you beat me?

You singed my hair with cigarettes as I walked home from school

You tripped me up in the hallways

You locked me in and shoved me in the bin

You laughed as I cried in sorrow

You mocked me and told me I should die

So I studied as you laughed

Now you're the one left with nothing

And now it is I who is in the mould.
