Used & Abused


 

Broken bones, cuts and bruises,
Bloody noses,swollen black eyes
Beat down for no reason at all
At least I’m allowed to cry

I do everything you want
In order and by your book
But still you expect so much more
So much of me you took

Make-up may hide the bruises
It doesn’t change how I feel
My eyes tell a horrible story
My heart will never heal

A better world is outside
I wish that I could get away
Just to survive until tomorrow
In silence, I have to pray

~~~

Used And Abused was inspired by women all over
the world who is or has been in an abusive relationship and survived or died.
Get out! But first plan how to do it without detection
