It’s happening again
Just like last time,
I wish it was over

I can't believe I fell for his lies
I should have known better
But I let it happen, again

I called him up
I asked him to come
I let him in

I tried to push him off of me
I tried to get him out of me
I tried to make him leave

But he wouldn’t, he didn’t
All I could do is wait it out, so
I closed my eyes and slipped away

I thought about what would happen next
I was scared that something would
I prayed to God to keep me safe

When it was over I didn’t cry
I didn’t scream
I just sat there, unthinking

I didn’t know what to think
I didn’t know what to say
I didn’t know who to talk to

So I sat there scared
I sat there confused
And I sat there lonely

I prayed to God all the time
“Please God please,
Don’t let this happen to me”

But nothing happened
I was safe
I was happy once again

Happy until I messed up
Until I let it happen again
Until once again I let him in

I know most people may not be able to relate to this, but I still hope that you can feel the strong emotion and the pain in this. And that your hearts go out for those of us who have really gone through this.
