I’m the girl who gave it up…

I’m the girl who gave it up

easily, it would seem

took one for the team

those men robbed

me of my youth

replaced it with a

constant state of despair

I lost my way

and in the darkness

of my not knowing

I found you

in a place unseen

I asked you

let it be now

my heart rested

on your promise

that tomorrow

will still be there

despite the lies

I have not lived

until I have seen

my gaping wounds

tattooed on your souls

I’m the girl who

gave it up

whose name you didn’t know.
