Through the eyes of an abused child

Memories plague my nights and haunt my dreams
Outside my cage of pain you’re taunting me
I’m told I’m worthless; you laugh at my screams
Darkness surrounds me and I cannot see
Don’t hurt me, strike me; don’t leave me alone
You’ve broken me but I can’t let you go
Even as you smile cruelly seeing me moan
I still believe you will one day say no
And stop this torture and let my heart heal
Please no more pain! I know I’m a disgrace
You tell me you hate me, force me to kneel
Yet sometimes when I look upon your face
I think I see some love shine in your eyes
And feel one day you’ll listen to my cries
